    Its a mystery. I never had one that color. It looks much tamier than any keet I have ever seen. Mine are white with spots of tiger stripes. They look very wild.

    If it has minimal white I would say pewter or slate. Slate is more common but the chick looks a little light in the pics for slate. If it has some white then copper and violet are possibilities.

    Could it be a hybrid with a chicken?

    Thanks everyone for your ideas, and the other chart links too! She does look alot like the pewter keets so cross your fingers! My husband laughed when I read the comment about the chicken cross! The only roo's around the guineas are little bantams black roo's the guineas chase constantly LOL! If she had any striping on her head I would have thought the buff or buff dunlotte cause we have one of those, but she is Very Light and has no hint of striping at all! There is one sibling that I'm figuring is a pied, and one that is a cinnamony color. I love that there are so many variations!
    I will post pics as they start to feather out so you all can see!
    Thanks again!
