Lavender Guineas 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. Guineas, which are known as keets, are very active and easy to raise. After about 4 weeks of age, they require very little attention and will take care of themselves by hustling for their food. Some of the benefits of having a farm flock of guineas are as follows: very fine "watch dogs", keep snakes away from the farm and consume grasshoppers, ticks (including those which carry Lyme Disease) and other insects.

Keets are available only as Straight Runs from June through August.
