They say keets are not hardy at all as babies . They cant get wet, even their feet or they chill easy and die quickly. So a lot of them are lost as babies just by free ranging them with mama. But, as they are older they are supposed to be very hardy. More so then chickens. I hatched and raised for a while and dint have problems But they claim mother hens are the worst mamas there can be so I either pulled the chicks or incubated. I only lost one and that was because I dropped a rock on its head.
