Albino Duck or Domestic Duck

So I was driving along Mt Glorious Rd Samford when I noticed this big brown/white duck.

It was hanging around the male Pacific Black Duck in the 3rd Photo.

Is it an Albino or just a domestic duck?

It was in a paddock but there wasn't a house there.

It also had this groovy mohawk thing going on.

Please let me know

Cheers

You should have caught it, it's probabely very nice when roasted. Lots of garlic, herbs ,wine and butter.

I'd say that it's definately a domestic duck. We have a duck that has a pompom on its headsmiley

Thats a shame. I thought I may have discovered a rare breed of duck lol. 

It has similar markings  to the pacific black duck thats why I thought it may have been an albino.

Drove past yesterday and it was still there.

I used to be (maybe 30 years ago) interested in poultry and pigeons but not ducks. My old memory says that there was a duck breed with this pompom crest and I thought that it was called Polish Duck but googled and no. I do recall seeing ducks with this feature.

I put my 2 cents worth in and say domestic.

A lot larger and toally different body shape compared to your pictured Pacific Black Duck.

Those head markings sure are similar though, shame.
