Pet duck say its rare get paid
You could tell him it's an incredibly rare chicken/duck hybrid and charge him double! ;D Just kidding!
It is like webfoot says, pet duck named crested duck. There are a lot of colours of them and they are very common here in Germany,
If I am remembering correctly, the crest is a semi-dominant mutation so it's also possible that the duck he shot might be half wild and half domestic. (That would explain why it could fly in a competent fashion.)
And ... an even more remote possibility: It could be a spontaneous mutation.
It's very unlikely, but not impossible. After all, the original founder for the crested duck breed came from two parent who had normal heads.
(I have a crested turkey in my freezer and she came from two parents with normal heads. It's rare, but it can happen.)
