    Hi! Someone I know came across a duck that, the way they describe it, sounds like it is probably a mutt, but might actually be a Streicher/Abacot.

    So, anyone here with knowledge of this breed? I would love to see more pictures. I found a handful online.

    I don't think they have ever been imported into the United States as "Abacot Rangers" or "Streichers", but they are virtually the same genotype as our Silver Welsh Harlequins.

    agreed, some snowy patterened birds look similar as well, I would lead more towards snowy patterened bird or welsh harlequin.
