Help ID this bird

We can't ID this bird. Any ideas? We think maybe it's a farm duck/goose/godzilla bird...?

How rare are these? I shot an immature one a few years back and thought it was also just a farm goose. It had the same big light colored shoulder patch.

Depends on how many people keep them as pets near where you hunt...

Definetly looks like an Egyptian goose, but either a juvi or bad plumed drake. I have seen a ton of them in Africa.
Give me some quack and I'll never work again
