Crested white personality? Same as Pekin?

I hear a lot of folks saying that crested whites are just pekins with a floofy hairdo. How do their personalities compare to a pekin? Same or...?

Yeahh, they make good pets like Pekins, although our male is being really mean and keeps chasing us ):

I would get a 1 day old sexed female from Metzers. I'm worried about their neuro issues though...you know anyone who recieved an afflicted crested from Metzer's?

I have one crested blue swedish from a feed store (Micky) that had some seizures, tiny, weird crest... just a hot mess of a duck.

I was worried because I had already ordered 2 white crested from Metzer's when I first noticed Micky's seizures so I've watched them closely but they're great. The crests look nice and they've never had a seizure or gone spacey or anything.

As far as personality goes, they act pretty much the same as our pekins but none of them are people oriented because there were 14 of them together in the brooder. They do grow slower than the pekins though. Enjoy! and post pics... Are you getting other breeds too?
