    Unfortunately these birds are at that stage where they fall into the "could be any number of white birds" category - as they mature a bit more and their build becomes more set and other characteristics become more apparent then they can be narrowed down.

    As well feathered as they are they would be considerably heavier at this point if they were meaties.
