    as far as temperament they weren't aggressive when i picked them up...they dont want any thing to do with me since they have been here...they dont pick on the pekin ducks in fact the ducks are such piggies i had to put some food in a higher place.

    The four in front look like hatchery Chinese and the last one looks like a hatchery Africian.

    I have to agree with Farmdude as the bird on the left does look more like an African as it appears larger and 'thicker' set.
