Sold by the dozen: $31.20. When hatched, slate keets are a solid rusty red color with no stripes. They are a little lighter color on the belly. Very cute little keets. As they feather, they gradually change to the steel blue color. When fully grown, slate guinea are rare, not often seen in the U.S. They’re a steel blue color. They also have a collar of iridescent purplish blue around their neck. This extends from the bare area on the neck down to the shoulder in the back and the crop area in the front. The color is very uniform with no dotting or barring as in the semi-solid color varieties. This is a very nice color and will be very popular as more of these become available.
