The reverse Okeetees I've seen as hatchlings tend to have very exaggerated white saddle borders...so much so that you almost lose the red saddles towards the tail. Here's a pic of a young reverse Okeetee hatchling that was a month old IIRC.

Here is a clutchmate that had more color to him, but still had the broad white saddle borders.

For comparison, here's a juvenile Okeetee.

Here's a hatchling that is definitely not an amel Okeetee. He doesn't have the high orange background color (nor will he ever) and his clear saddle borders are only 1/2 scale wide, if that. Even if he had the brightest orange background you ever did see, he'd never be an albino Okeetee since his saddle borders are too thin.
