    We got Guinea Keets and they didn't tell us what kind of Guinea Hen they will grow up to be. What color or breed. Can anyone tell from these pictures or do all Keets look the same at this age?

    @Pyxis is correct that it is a Pearl Gray keet. Here is the link to a guinea color chart. Scroll down to the bottom to see the pictures of the keets.

    The different colors are not different breeds. This link is good for seeing what color different colored keets will become: http://www.guineafowl.com/fritsfarm/guineas/colors/

    PS They aren't all Guinea Hens. Only the females are [​IMG]
