    Hi all ...
    ordered and received keets from McMurray and wonder if you can tell
    me the color of one keet?? or all to be sure I know what I have please...
    I ordered the assorted package..
    [​IMG][​IMG]markings tell me I have several Royal Purples and Pearls...
    believe I also have two Coral Blues.....
    but am not sure about this color below...its neck is redish and thru his back...top of head is dark with no markings (two of them)

    This is so weird! I have 6 week old keets and I got one reddish brown and one pied....exactly the same colors as yours. I love them bc they are different from the rest. They are also the shyest of the group.

    I thought the brownish one is looking like it might be Pewter from the color chart.

    Are they also from McMurray?
    On the darker keet....they don't offer
    Pewter as a color choice....

    As far as I know, McMurray and Stromberg's actually get their guineas from Ralph Winter's Guinea Farm.

    http://www.guineafarm.com/

    If you got their assorted guinea package, it also doesn't list pied among the choices. The keets could be anything that the Guinea Farm offers.
