Peking hen

Behavior and character
Peking hens aren’t just adorable in appearance. They are also the friendliest chickens in the coop. They are docile and curious, which creates a great bond between the human and the hen. If you are looking for a hen to cuddle, the Pekin is for you. She is also ideal with young children as she is calm and accommodating. She doesn’t scrape the soil much and isn’t one to peck at your plants.

If you have several breeds in your chicken coop, be careful not to mix your Peking hens with overly dominant species. I prefer other ornamental hens such as Silk hens or Padua hens.
