    That's exactly what they look like! Thanks! I'm pretty sure the light ones are pearl's? I hope so...

    The dark striped keets are pearls. I'm not sure what the lighter ones are. I'm having a little trouble telling what shade they are. Are a couple more tan than the others? If so, then they might be buff dundottes. If they are more bluish gray, then they might be lavenders. Cute little ones no matter what color they are!

    No tan on the lighter ones, grayish white with a little darker gray strip on their heads..

    Then they're probably lavenders. [​IMG]
