The only white baby chick

Did you know that white Guinea keets are the only poultry that the white birds hatch pure white and not yellow? They are not albino, just pure white. Chickens, turkeys and even ducks & geese all hatch yellow.

They keep their snow white feathers as they grow but their face does turn to the 'clown mask' that all Guineas have.

Just an interesting poultry fact I thought I'd share with you!



  1. I didn't realize keets were the only white baby birds! How cool!

    1. I didn't think about it either....I know every other white baby I had hatched out yellow..but I hadn't put it together in my mind till I did some research.

      Thanks for stopping by!
