    I am no expert, but I believe you would get a Lavender with white feathers as well.

    I'll suggest you ask this question on Guinea Fowl International since their focus is Guineas.

    Even though I liked the idea of a jewel toned flock I chose to keep my color pure by having just one color, lavender.

    So do I but most want pure colors when they buy so straight lavender is the way I went. But I have porcelains popping up out of the lavenders from time to time.

    As with most birds there probably is not a solid answer for what you'll end up with since you don't know the back color genetics of your birds. The proof is the porcelain showing up in my pure lavender flock.
