Paradise Shelducks are very colorful, large, goose-like ducks. Unlike most ducks, the female, with her white head and neck and a chestnut-colored body, is more eye-catching than the male, who sports a dark gray body and black head with occasional green iridescence. Contrasting male and female plumages make them a dramatic pair. Both sexes have a chestnut undertail and black, green, and white wings. Paradise Shelducks  are easily tamed and are quite hardy. A striking pair of Paradise Shelducks would be a beautiful addition to any waterfowl collection.
