    I love that bronze! You have some handsome guineas there guineaguy. Can you get a picture of the blonde hen in the sun?

    Maybe it's the lighting again, but those flank feathers in this recent pic look dark brown to me (like the color of dark roasted coffee beans), not charcoal grey/black...
    He doesn't look all that much different from my Chocolate Hens.

    Maybe you could catch him and your Royal Purple and do a side by side pic of their flank feathers like this pic of a one of my Chocolates and Royal Purples? (Too much sun in this pic, camera wasn't cooperating on auto).

    I'm really liking this color.

    My Blonde Hens have the same grey/smokey hue like this pic of your Hen shows. I need to separate my Blonde male with my 4 Blonde Hens and hatch more of them this season. Uggh add it to my to-do list!

    Thanks for going to all that trouble. Yep, black flank feathers, well hidden under all his Bronziness, lol but I see them. I'm convinced, finally, lol.
    Have you figured out which Hen you'll be pairing him with?
