    Quote:Yep, I love guinea eyelashes! They are beautiful, have you hatched anything from them yet?

    Also, your male isnt Lavender. I think he might be a Royal Purple, but Lavs are way lighter than that.

    Quote:You know, I didn't even think about that but you're right - the male is royal purple and that female looks like a coral blue.....

    Royal purple...cool.

    Two hens are the light Pearl Grey. The other hen, the one in the pic is white. I have 18 of their eggs in the bator now. They are due to hatch this weekend. The wait is killing me
