    To me it looks like an Ancona. I think it's too tall and slender to be a Muscovy.

    hes a magpie, has the exact same color patterns as mine. Mine are 3 months, and they just finished fully feathering out.

    It could be a black swedish cross. They are black and white like that, but usually don't have so much white. Which is why I'm thinking it could be some sort of cross.
