    Does anyone have a clue what I've got?? I know the pics aren't the best but geez these little suckers are either fast as lightening or so huddled up you can't get a good pic!!

    Thanks for your help!

    I need a bigger pic, a close up to tell for sure... but I think I see 3 Pearl Greys, 2 Browns, 3 Buff Dundottes (possibly 2 Hens and a male), 1 Lite Blue and 1 Porcelain. If you can post a bigger pic I'll label them all so you know who is what, if you'd like. Cute batch, will be a very pretty flock, congrats!

    Hmm, now I see 3 Brown keets and I'm not so sure about seeing a Porcelain keet... in the first pic the center head stripe and the stripe of color down it's back looked like a light grey color, now it looks kind of tan, so that keet may be a lighter colored Buff Dundotte (possibly male). When the wing feathers start coming in look at the shafts under it's wing, if they are grey/blue tinted at all it'll be a Porcelain, if they are cream or white it will be a Buff Dundotte. The Brown keet on the far left is darker, so it may be a Hen. I hope you can post more pics of this batch as they grow, I'd love to see how they feather out!

    What a sweet batch of keets you got there! They will make a quite stunning flock to be sure! Thanks for the color lesson PeepsCA! Your knowledge is just invaluable!
