My 9 girls, 7 purebred Pekins, and 2 hybrid Silkies, are producing dozens of eggs a week that are just going to waste, the family will not touch fertilised eggs.
I have one Pekin cockerel, a lemon cuckoo.
The other two girl's eggs are easy to tell from the Pekin eggs, they are larger.
So if anyone wants pure Pekin eggs, please let me know, you are welcome to them.

What a terrible shame Valerie, especially as they aren't fertile until incubated. What colours of Pekin hens do you have?

I have a lemon cuckoo girl, 2 blue, 1 lavender, 1 lavender cuckoo, 1 Millefleur, 1 pure white.
The last batch I incubated and hatched, about 9/10 days ago are 4 lemon types, 2 of them with darker markings on the wings, Mum perhaps Millefleur? and 5 black! I am assuming the black are from the blues. They all look great little birds, and mostly I think, females.
Decided to refrigerate the eggs immediately and eat them as and when.
But if anybody is this way they are welcome to any non-refrigerated eggs.
