    I wanted to see if anyone could give me answers on these colors. I Purchased royal purple Guineas at a sale last week. I looked up the color and pretty much most of mine are standard. In the same two cages were three very light colored guineas. In person they appear an actual lavender color or a light purple. Does anyone have any experience with this color? If so, is this normal and these are just cropouts or was I duped?

    I can see 7 Royal Purple Guineas in your photos. I cannot be sure because of the low quality of the photos but it appears that you also have 3 Coral Blue guineas.

    Royal purple with a sneaky lavender in traveling salesman corner. I like the contrast bY the way... Royal purple should have a few dots... but as they get older they will develop that iridescent sheen.

    Hi @R2elk -
    We have 5 royal purple guineas. I'm noticing that their back feathers are actually dulling compared to their iridescent purple of the last 6 months. Any ideas on what's going on?
    Thanks!
