I wondered if someone could identify these birds.
They were quite large, the size of a Canadian goose in the body (a lot bigger than the chickens I keep!) , short neck and legs, thick set.
They had a pink then black beak with the same pink around the eyes. Pink/orange legs a grey body, white neck and black underneath at tail.
