Goose?
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!

AKA peacock  [:)] Like this one:

I was interested to notice that they seem to be called peafowl as a proper name, not peacock as we all call them!

It is like the US Declaration of Independence "All MEN are Created Equal"  What about the other half of the population?

A "Cock" as in Peacock refers to the male (which is the colorful one).
As opposed to the Peahen

So...  actually the proper term would be a "Peachick"    [???]
