    I bought these guys at a sale. They sold them as Pterodactyls since the girl holding them up didn't know what they were...[​IMG]

    I was wondering if someone could give me a guess on age and breed. This is a first for me!

    Looks like Chocolate to me. Whenever you see a white mask, the poults are always in the black base colors. A example of black based colors would be Black Spanish, Chocolate, Rusty Black, Slate Blue, and Buff.

    It cannot be Bourbon Red or Auburn because they do not have mask.
