Welcome to Pootle Pekins!
Welcome to my website, dedicated to my love of pekin and booted bantam (sabelpoot) chickens.
I keep both breeds in a variety of colours and encourage everyone to keep a few chickens if they can...it doesn't matter whether they are pure breeds, hybrids or ex-battery farm hens; with a little space in the garden and a little time setting up a coop, they are almost the perfect pet in every way. Pekins and booted bantams are superb breeds for families with children, and all chickens offer children the opportunity to see where food (such as eggs) comes from.
I am quite passionate about poultry welfare and dream of a day when everyone could keep or provide others with chickens and eggs kept in humane conditions...removing the need for the commercial chicken industry.
