Even the experts are stumped. They were acquired from a Miami, Pla., dealer recently. He called them "giant gray mountain toucans." The 200 is convinced the birds are toucans—of a sort. But they aren't ?ray, and they're not exactly yiunts. They were gray when 'they arrived —a dirty gray. But after fluttering about in their pool, they came up with blue breasts. Neither do they have the gay colors toucans are supposed to have. Their blues, yellows, browns and greens are subdued—like their personalities. They haven't given out with a single "awk" since they arrived . Available bird books at the zoo and the public library fail to describe the creatures. Expert birdmen have looked them over. The only decision they've reached is ;hat one ifi male and one is female. A few spoonfuls of milk or a ittle butter will lessen the salty 'lavor in cooking. Attention, Farmers!
