    I have two keets that are brown on top and white chests. I was told they are royal guineas? does anyone have any pictures of full grown ones?
    Thanks

    There's only one Guinea color with "Royal" in the name and that is the Royal Purple.

    Here's one of my males:

    This is a Royal Purple keet... they are not exactly brown with a white chest tho:

    Here's a regular Pearl Grey and a "Teddy Bear" Pied Pearl Grey (the RP is in the middle) to compare your keet to:

    Can you post a pic of your keet?
