    Can someone please post and tell me the difference between a Lite Blue and a Coral Blue keet?
    They look a lot alike to me...If you can, can you post a picture?
    Thanks,
    Ashley

    I don't have any keet pics for comparison, but I'll work on getting my Lite Blue juvenile in a cage with a Coral Blue of the approximate same age for a comparison pic or 2. The keets were very similar looking when hatched, the markings were just lighter on the Lite Blue, (still had the squiggly stripes on it's head and white wings like Coral Blue keets do, just a more faded appearance to them - but darker/more pronounced than an Opaline's markings).

    The Lite Blue/Coral Blue difference is very similar to the Lite Lavender/Lavender comparison... just a couple shades different in color, and I'm just guessing that my Lite Blue will get a creamy washed out color over the neck, breast and back area like my Lite Lavenders have (but since this is my first Lite Blue that I've ever hatched and it's still young I won't know that until it molts again).

    I'll try to get pics as soon as I can.
