    The Lavender Pekin breed of chicken is well loved for it's friendly trait. Often kept as a family pet, this chicken is amiably tame, cute and well-behaved. Unlike other breeds, the Lavender Pekin lays small tiny eggs which are very unique. The blue eggs that this chicken produces can be as frequent as one egg a day once the hen is old enough. Although in some cases, some Pekins such as the Bantam Pekin produce cream colored eggs as well.

    This breed come in different colors such as lavender, blue, silver partridge, blue mottled, columbian, cuckoo, mottled, buff, black, red partridge, white and wheaten.

    They can tolerate almost any kind of climate and they are also very easy to handle.If you are planning on taking care of a chicken breed, the Lavender Pekin is a good candidate since it requires just little space to keep it surviving because of its characteristic and personality.

    Pros - Small, Cute, VERY friendly
    Cons - VERY few eggs, VERY small eggs
    I love this chicken i have one of these and 3 different types of silkie bantams and this bird by far is the best, my three year old even says that its her favourite, i think because its so friendly it will come in the house when outside every couple of minutes while the others stay outside, i also find that when going to stroke or pick up the chickens, this breed is the only one that will let you, she will crouch down and wait for you to pick her up... the poor girl is getting picked up every 4-5 minutes by my 3 year old and treated like a teddy bear but she doesnt seem bothered and infact keeps coming inside and letting her pick her up...
    The fact that this bird lays very tiny eggs and very few of them 2-3 a week is shadowed by the friendliness of this breed.
