    What color is this keet? He is about 2 1/2 weeks old.

    Total Guessing here but I say its either a Violet or Pewter.
    I'm probably wrong but I do have to say it's a very pretty color! [​IMG]

    The only colors that I own are the pearl pied, royal purple pied, buff, white, and coral blue. Could it be a buff?

    I don't think it's a Buff but maybe a Coral Blue? [​IMG]

    No I know what they look like. They look like the lavender but with white wings. I think I am going to keep it so I can see what color it turns out to be.

    It's a Brown, or a Cinnamon, depending on which breeder/hatchery you ask. (I consider that Cinnamon tho)

    Quote:Most Guineas carry lots of hidden recessive genes (pertaining to colors and the amount of pearling), and depending on who is carrying what genes, a breeding pair can produce many colors/varieties of keets.
