Royal Purple Guinea Eggs1+$3.50
Sold by the dozen. When hatched, royal purple keets are brown with small irregular black striping on the back and the top of the head. The face, front of the neck, belly, and wings are white. Beak, legs, and toes are orange. They will feather brown with black markings. They feather with a dark underside, losing all the white as they feather. At two to three months of age, they molt in with their dark black feathers. Royal purples are often confused with pearl grays before this molt. When fully grown, royal purple guineas are a very dark black color with a lovely purplish sheen. They do not have regular dotting, but do have some dotting and barring in the flank area. These are magnificently handsome beauties.
