    Quote:Yeah BBreds, but they're really really light. So far the lightest i have seen. Which rules out color quality.

    By those pictures they need to hold their tails higher, the one on the left looks too big. Other than that though the seem.. Alright. They're young though, so the tail can and may come into play at maturity.
