    Thanks, I was trying to add some new blood and color to my crew. I have pearl, pied and buff.. I was hoping the brown/white pied would not be pearl pied as I have one of those. but at least I have new bloodline. Happy if I got some lavender. That is a plus for next year [​IMG]

    Ooooh cute batch! [​IMG]
    I see 4 Royal Purples, 1 Lavender and 5 that look like Coral Blues. The pic's a little fuzzy, but most of the grey and white keets look like CBs to me.
    If they (the grey and whites) have broken/squiggly stripes on their heads and white wings all the way to the shoulder then they are CBs. If they have a wide stripe on their heads and white wings they are probably Pied Lavenders. I'm guessin' mostly CBs tho.

    First pic shows the head of a Coral Blue (my FAV!) and the other lil guy looks like a "teddy bear" patterned Pied Pearl Grey (mottle/blended body and head colors instead of the normal stripes). In about 2 weeks he should start feathering out the same as a normal (Pied) Pearl Grey, with a few white chest feathers and some white wing feathers)... unless his stripes on his head are broken, then he may be a Pied Royal Purple. But if the top of his head has a broad dark stripe (which it appears to me that it does) then I'm still leaning towards the teddy bear patterned Pied Pearl Grey.

    Quote:I have to get some recent pix of my brood. Today I was trying to figure out what colors were what. There is one with a kind of reddish brown head with creamy beige sides to his face. Then there are three colors of lavender? Very dark, Maybe a blue? That one is HUGE a full head taller than the rest. A couple of what I think of as lavender and a couple that are a light grey? Not blue at all.... or maybe I am color blind.... Sheesh. I will get pix. Today though I have family stuff going on.
