    What exactly do you mean by "Odd and Unusual"?
    And I dont know about muscovies, but in general you should look for-

    *Bright Eyes, No snot or lethargic-ness
    *Alertness, Awake, Standing
    *Non-Aggressive if Possible (Handraised)
    *No deformities like Splay Leg
    *Nothing Overly Dirty or unhealthy looking.
