    Was sold her as a millefleur pekin bantam. Is that right? She has filled out a lot more now this photo is about 4 weeks old.

    Pretty sure she isn't a rooster, she had just had a bath and was half-dried so that might be why the feathers look like that. She actually has had lots more feathers come in and her tail is very rounded and poofy. the photo is rubbish your right, maybe I will get some more at the weekend. Its always dark when I get home from work :(

    From that darker coloration, I'd say it has to be a cockerel... if you check the color difference, you'll see that Mille Fleur pullets develop with a lighter orange coloration, and the males get closer to a mahogany. If it's any comfort, I think you have the breed correct [​IMG]

    for the size I think its a hen due to lack of comb and wattles how old is she and yes she looks like a pekin

    a clearer pic would help...she does look like a cochin (i only call them cochins)

    1) she is either a very dark colored pullet 2) or she is a cockerel

    her is a hen

    Good to know that they're the same bird... no wonder I could never figure out what exactly a pekin was [​IMG]

    NEW PHOTOS -

    I am quite sure that she is a hen, she is very dark coloured though. Here are a few more photos of her and her sister. Excuse the muddy legs they love scratching about in the dirt!

    she is deff. a bantam pekin. now I would call her the millefleur color but she isn't the best as she doesn't have enough white and black on her.
