    Hello everyone


    But I have 7 week old Pekins from a mixed pen hatch and I have some really pretty girls but cant work out what colour to call them! The 2 that I'm struggling with have pure yellow heads and chests down to the middle of their back and then a beige/yellow pattern starting and going right through to their tails with the beige through the middle of the feathers.

    Also if anyone can tell me what colour boy would go best with them for getting the same colour chicks next year? I was hoping that seeing as both girls are so similarly marked that I could get good results.[​IMG]

    I know its frustrating! I understand why they do it but still.........

    Have been trying to up my posting numbers so I can put on a photo, hopefully can get one uploaded this weekend.

    Really like my pretty girls so am hoping I can get the same results by breeding from them next year [​IMG]
