    I don't know much about duck colors yet..... Is this a Fawn & White? My other runner is much lighter ... more of a cream and white.

    And what is this Canadian goose crossed with? It lives at the water park in Coldwater and keeps with a full Canadian Goose. African maybe???? Or is it some kind of other breed ?

    That goose is a purebred Bar-headed goose.
    Most likely an Escapee from someones collection. It is an Asiatic species of wild goose that migrates over the himalayas every year to their nesting grounds.

    I have been looking to buy those with not much luck.......

    That runner looks like a Fawn and white.

    I think your runner will be a fawn and white. It is just in the awkward teenager stage right now. Once it gets its "big duck" feathers, it will most likely lighten up. It could also end up looking like the duck on this page...

    P.S. That is one cool looking goose.
