    #1 & #2 Pearl Grey, pretty positive on those

    #3 & #4 look Royal Purple, but the left one in the 2nd and 3rd pics might possibly be a Chocolate.

    If you can, post more pics with their head markings more smoothed out in a couple days when they are more fluffed out, I'll be able to better tell what they are for sure.

    Cute tho, congrats, did you hatch them?

    OK, I'd love to see how they look now, and I'll be able to better tell if there's a Chocolate or not.
    Congrats on your hatch!

    Something else I just noticed... the head marking/squiggly stripe area looks a little narrow on one of the keets (the keet on the right in pic 1, 2 and 4), and in pic 4 I think I see white flight feathers coming in at the very tips of it's wings. So you might have a Pied Royal Purple [​IMG]

    well, since it was a mixed flock,we may never know for certain but it is still fun trying to guess.
    i would love to have a big mixed flock running around.


    here is what the person i got them from said she had
    "I have all different colors. I have the normal pearl, lavender, white and then there are some with a dark violet color to them and then some are light like the lavender but have a sky blue like coloring to them. Oh and I have some tan color ones and pied colored ones."
