Most colorful version of duck/goose I have seen this side of the pond is the Egyptian goose - very unusual looking.

Yeah, it is a cool looking duck, I have yet to run into one, they are around though, I just haven't been where they are yet. :)

That's true. A good, all-rounder is the Muscovy, for eggs and meat, but not in the beauty stakes, alas.:-)
BTW, has anyone got shots of the Indian Runner? Now, there's a daft-looking duck...
