What Color are my Pekin Bantams - PLEASE HELP ME

Discussion in 'Raising Baby Chicks' started by piouspekin, May 9, 2017.

  1. PLEASE RESPOND I WOULD BE VERY APPRECIATIVE
    I have 2 young pekins that I hatched one of them looks like a blue and I think is a cockerel but the colors aren't even there are actually some black feathers and bits of black in his feathers so I wasn't sure if that is blue or not (his father is a splash) if that helps, the other one is definitely a pullet and looks like a buff but I notice the back half of her is very light almost white is that because she is young and will darken up or is she not a buff? I want to enter them in a local
    show and that is why I need to know their actual colors PLEASE HELP Me my Backyard friends

    I'm not sure, but I don't think they are any recognizable color.

    Mixed colors on the buff. That's exactly the look you get in a sexlink so I presume one white plumage parent and one buff. Not sure if the other is splash or mixed, too.
