An interesting few keets for us.
Can anyone tell us what colour they will turn out to be please?
The one on the left looks like it is already going grey. Its has a real silvery colour through it.
I hope you can see it well enough.
The photo is with what I would call a "normal" wild type keet.

This one is a plain brown colour with no stripes. It looks to be very pied with white flight feathers

Image

This is the underside of another wild type keet from the top but very light underneath.

They will all be Pearls's Lucky.. Are you breeding flock all Pearls or do you have other colors??

They are very cute when they are just hatched and very friendly, then they develop their 'wild side' as they grow.

Well done... I have just put the first clutch in the incubator this week, they are very late layers this years, weather has been really horrible for Guinea's.

We have lavender as well as the pearls and pied in both.
I think we have had a good season for them here. I even had 7 eggs from the 6 hens two days in a row!
I've seen chooks do that but not guineas until now.
142 eggs so far for the month from a possible150! :-D They are all first year hens.
