So, I just hatched 20 keets, and I wanted some help IDing the colors because the last batch that I hatched had two that I would have sworn were both pearl grey, and one of them feathered out buff dundotte. I have a friend that specifically wants only dark colored birds so I want to avoid accidentally giving her a buff. Here’s a picture of the two keets from last batch:

(Excuse my boyfriend’s hairy belly, he was trying to tame them with “skin-to-skin contact”:lau)

I can kinda see that the one chick is just slightly lighter and his stripes are slightly less defined, but he doesn’t look like the buff dundotte keets I’ve seen online.

So, here are the new babies:

#1. These I assume are pearl grey, although the one on the right seems maybe a touch lighter and less stripey than the others.

#2. These I think are pied pearl grey

#3. Here are two different babies that I labeled as “questionable”. Each one is photographed with a regular pearl grey keet for comparison.

#4. Pretty sure these guys are lavender and pied lavender

#6. White :D

So, thoughts? If it helps, my breeding males are pearl grey, lavender pied, and buff dundotte. My breeding females are pied pearl grey, lavender, and slate.

Agree that these are likely Pearl Gray.

#2. These I think are pied pearl grey
The two facing the front are Pied Pearl Gray. If the other 3 also have a solid stripe on the top of their heads, they are also Pied Pearl Gray.

#3. Here are two different babies that I labeled as “questionable”. Each one is photographed with a regular pearl grey keet for comparison.
The one on the left in the first pic might be a Brown. Not sure what the one in the second pic is.

#4. Pretty sure these guys are lavender and pied lavender
Looks like one Lavender and two Pied Lavenders but can't say for sure about the one on the right without seeing the top of its head.

#5. Not sure about these two?
The one on the left appears to be a Royal Purple and the one on the right looks like a Chocolate.

The one on the left in the first pic (for batch of keets #3) is supposed to be the pearl grey that’s just there for comparison. He’s actually in the #1 picture as well.
