    I've got a 6 week old Pekin and Ancona, both adorable little girls. Everything I've read about Anconas talks about how tame and friendly they are but mine is a total spaz. Anyone else have a spazzy Ancona?

    Imola, the Pekin is friendly as can be. Stays calm and lets me hold her. But not (freebie) Phoebe the Ancona. She panics everytime I pick her up and I have to chase her around the kiddie pool to get her out, even using peas. Hopefully this is just a stage?

    I had a crested ancona that went through this "stage" but he has found a new home for attacking his own kids [​IMG]
