    Hey Guys! I purchased this girl at a chicken swap last October and I finally got some good pictures of her. The person I purchased her from thought she was half Chocolate and half Coral Blue ????? I didn't think they could be half one color and half another - well unless they are pied. She has no dots so she is solid. I didn't see her as a keet, she was already full grown. Any help would be great!!! I can't wait for hatching season to start here!!![​IMG]

    Please ignore the extension cord. The tractor's battery is dead - again!

    From the images posted on the Guinea Fowl International Association site, the closest one resembling your guinea is perhaps the pewter. Since in many of the colors there is a light and dark phase with the hen usually being the darker phase, perhaps she is a dark pewter.

    I expect to have some Coral Blue/Chocolate crosses this year so it will be interesting to see what comes out.

    She almost looks like slate. There are SO MANY colors now, some are just "original"!
