Lavender Guinea Keets

$6.50

Lavender Guinea Keets are a relatively rare variety, which may have been the results of crossing Pearl Grays with White Africans.  The entire plumage is very pale silvery gray with a lavender or lilac tint.  They have spotting similar to Pearl Guineas with white dots in the usual manner, which have gray instead of black outer rings.  Their skin is lighter than the skin of Pearl Guineas.  These birds are one of the most overlooked allies you can have in your garden, orchard or pasture for their helpfulness in reducing the insect population, including ticks.  Lively and alert, Guinea Keets will let you know when something is amiss in their territory, and they will make a lot of racket.  They are calm and gentle toward their owners when raised from keets and are known for their unique ornamental value.  After the keets have grown past two weeks old, they are one of the hardiest domestic fowl.
