    I don't have a picture of her to show, but I have a guinea baby (4 mo. old) that is white but she has definite pearling. The other white guinea that I have (could be papa - don't know for sure as a broody chicken hatched the baby guinea) does not have any pearling at all - just solid white. So the possible papa is all white & the white baby has pearling. Same color?? [​IMG]

    No they are not the same color.
    The first one that you described sounds like a Buff Dundotte. Here is a picture of my Buff Dundottes. Does it look like this?

    It could also be a Porcelain. I don't have any of those but you can see a picture here.
    And the second one that you described; that color is just called White.

    Yes it looks like she is either a Porcelain or an Opeline. Is it possible to get either from lavendars, grays, & whites? That's all that I have.

    Quote:Yes, it is possible. I hatch colors that aren't in my flock all the time. Opaline is a partially pearled color; is she fully pearled or partially pearled?

    Just on her wings I think. I'll look more today but that's what I think.

    I tried to get a pic today - just came out blurry & white. I think she actually does look like your pic - she's a bit 'dirty' looking in the wings kind of like that. Thank you for the info I appreciate it. [​IMG]
