    Quote:I bought them at an auction about 6 months ago.Bought them for $36 ea. only way I got them was I was bidding with another guy and he one but he wanted them smaller one so I got the other two. The smaller one which I was guessing was a female was the same color as them..

    normally the birds that turn out like this are of chinese mixed backgrounds. I've seen many over the years that look like this and if you look closely they both appear to have a little bit of a knob at the tops of their beaks.

    They look like pilgrim geese to me. The neck feathers look just like them.
