    A duck that swims is everything I've ever wanted. I know there's a mod somewhere, but I still haven't figured out how all that works...

    I get that Minecraft mobs are iconic but all new mobs are getting colour variants; the axolotls and (upcoming) frogs. I was surprised goats didn't get a black of brown variant.

    The classic skins can be common but different animal variations could be rare occurrences. This would not break the game to implement and would create fun stories. I'd love to name my chickens and not need to walk over to see which is which using their name tag.

    Personally I think the cow and chicken should have variations, but after seeing pig variations in some resource packs, I'm convinced that the normal pink colored pig should be the only pig variant.

    I agree. If there are cat and axolotl variants, there should be more for pigs and cows.

    So many of the new mobs have different variants, so it's only fair the older mobs get some too.

    I think the chicken's drop variable color should stay the same though, even if it doesn't match, it doesn't seem necessary without more purposes to it. Brown chickens have some white feathers at least.

    I think i  swamps pigs should be muddy, in villages there is a 50% chance that a red cow spawns and no idea for the chicken
