My name is Marcus and I'm from The Netherlands. I have had guinea's for about 15 years, but always the standard available colors grey, lavender and white. Unfortunately we do not have many colors over here. I have joined this forum because I have a few questions about my guinea fowl. Recently I have bought a bunch of new guinea's in a variety of colors and I am wondering which colors I have and which colors I can breed with them. I hope you can help me with that.
I have set up a breading group consisting of:
- 1 male, coral blue (?)
- 1 female white (still has doting)
- 1 female lavender
- 1 female Royal Purple
Now I have bred my first keets but I have no clue what colors they have. I get a wide variety of colors and am very curious to what they will become. Do you have any suggestions?
My breeding group (lavender, coral blue and royal purple):
The keets with the white wings are beautifull, but I have 2 variaties? The grey keets are also not the same, one is more red-ish than the other?
I'd say 2 lavender and 1 coral blue? But what about the one with the white wings? Again not the same as the 3 in the picture above.
I really hope you can help me determine their colors!
Is there also someone who can help me with genetics? I would like to breed the colors more targeted, but I have no idea where to start and if there are maybe some ground rules in guinea fowl genetics.
A lot of questions in my first post, but then again I am very enthusiastic about my guinea's
