    I received my new lil guineas yesterday from the Guinea Farm ........friend an me went in together on a order an they made it here yesterday must say was kinda worried about them shipping in this heat but luckily out of the 30 only lost 2 one each for us..........they ordered Slate, Pewter, an Violet ........I ordered Violet an Buff........I will try to get a picture up soon for everyone needless to say they are some different from the normal color pearl keets ...........the Buffs are supposed to be able to sex them even as keets by the females being darker than the males an if this holds true then out of the 8 I got I for sure have 5 female an 2 male the other one is hard to tell for sure which way it goes but I am thinking it is a male..........next year I am hoping to be able to have both eggs an keets up for sale out of these colors ..........




    the cinnamon colored ones with the white wings an undersides are the Violets ........and the light colored ones with the dark backs are the Buffs....... an I also have a few Pearls an Lavenders in there with them

    No Lavender? I think Slate are sort of similar, aren't they?

    I love Lavender guineas. I have one named Purple Baby. She's a sweet little boo boo honey.

    I'm sure yours will all be gorgeous. Definitely post pics!
