    I went to the feed store today and couldnt believe it, but they had 2 whole tanks full of chicks and guineas. After alot of looking, I came home with these four little guys.

    I know theres a white one, but have NO idea what the others could be. (Im new to guineas. [​IMG] .)

    It looks like 1 white, 1 pearl, 1 lavender and 1 that is either a pied pearl or a color I'm not very familiar with [​IMG] Probably pied pearl

    So the pied pearl one would be the dark with the light colored chest?
    and the white is the white....
    and the all-yellow one is the lavender?
    and the dark is the pearl??

    Quote:In this pic, the one on the left is a pearl, the one next to it is probably pied pearl (but could be something like royal purple?), the one next to that, if it has light purple stripes in between the grey, it is a lavender. If not, I don't know what color it is. Then the one on the right is a white.

    ETA: At the bottom of this page Guinea Fowl International color chart are some pics of keets and their colors. You can look there and see what you think. The one that looks pied could very possibly be royal purple.
