Welcome to Pekin Corner
Simon Gambling : Breeder & Exhibitor of Quality Pekin Bantams
I HAVE A FEW PEKINS FOR SALE IN VARIOUS COLOURS. THESE ARE BREEDING QUALITY, ALL BRED FROM MY BEST BIRDS. PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR INFORMATION
I started out with Pekins many years ago when I was nine years old, since then I have kept most standard colours and the odd non-standard. For the last few years I have concentrated my efforts on my favorite three colours - black, cuckoo and columbian. I find working with these three colours more than enough of a challenge to keep them to a standard I am happy with. I do not tend to show my Pekins a great deal any more as I get most pleasure from the breeding side of things. I do attend the National and Federation shows most years but for the rest of the year prefer to keep my birds at home for enjoyment.
Recently (for the last 4 or 5 years) the columbian Pekin has taken up a lot of my time and space. This colour had become a very rare sight on the show scene for some reason but in recent years the populatrity has increased with a number of breeders around the UK now taking them on again and some good examples being exhibited.
The black and cuckoo Pekin are probably my two favorite colours and that's the main reason why I keep them now. Many people think that black or white Pekins are easier to breed than other colours but to do it properly I find can be just as difficult as, for example, the cuckoos.

I'd love to hear from other Pekin enthusiasts and will try my best to answer any questions you have. I will try to respond to all comments but please do not contact me asking for hatching eggs. I sometimes have birds for sale but not very often.
