    I have 2 royal purple keets, is there anyway to tell if either
    Of the them is pied? Pieds are my favorites.
    And i have someone wanting them. But like to keep one
    if its possible it might be a pied

    Usually if their chest is white they're pied. But that's for pearl grey

    You shouldn't just have one guinea fowl. It will get dreadfully lonely.

    :D oh no, i have way more than just the 2 keets.
    I have 12 adults, and just hatched out 9 keets with the help
    Of a bantam hen.
    Im keeping 2 or 3 of the keets to let the hen raise. And have the rest
    Sold, they will be picked up next week.
    There's a viloet keet and a gray pearl pied that im keeping.
    cant decided if i want to keep the white one or one of the royal purple
    Ones. I have never seen a royal purple pied, and was wanting to know
    How to tell if one was. I love the pieds. Most of my guineas are pieds.

    So no lonely guineas here:)

    :) no, i dont have a royal purple pied. I have never even seen a
    picture of one.
    I was wanting to know how to tell if my 2 keets, which are royal purple
    Could be pied.
    i have a lot of pieds in my flock.
    out of these 9 keets hatched only one is a pied, and its a grey pearl.u
     
  8. I have a few of these in my flock. I will try to get a photo

    I heard to make a pied of any colour you breed it with white.

    We have no royal purples in Australia :(
