    Some of you probably saw my hatch thread this weekend, anyway I now have 8 guinea keets in the brooder.

    I got a batch of eggs from a local breeder and they where assorted colors. There where 3 cocks, powder blue, chocolate, and brown. There where 8 hens listed as White, Slate, Violet, Powder Blue, etc. Not sure what the etc includes but I didn't see any pearls.

    I ended up with several different colors, can you help identify?

    Based on the color charts, I'm thinking

    Opaline or Powder blue
    Brown
    Brown
    Royal Purple or Bronze
    Pearl
    Pearl

    I'd like to get this figured out because I already have 4 pearls and 3 pieds and if any of these keets are those colors I'll give them away.
