    So I've been trolling the web for information on keets, and came upon a discussion of teddy bear keets. To me, they just look like pied keets. Anyone know what the difference is? Do they feather out differently?

    Never heard of them. I guess it's someone's attempt to put a new spin in the pied variety.

    This is a name coined by some guinea fanciers. It refers to pied keets that have an almost solid, kinda "widow's peak" look to the head, rather than several stripes. They always feather out as pied pearl grays--the original guinea color with white areas. Just a term to explain that look.
