    They are temporarily in the aquarium brooder that is intended for my quail that are due to hatch in a day or so. Every time someone walks into the room, they are running everywhere, and even right into the glass!! I put this in there, and now they hide everytime they see someone!!

    Yeah, it is pretty cute! I didn't want the little guys to break their necks running into the glass!

    Quote:Yeah they usually do sleep on their bellies. Once in a while I will find one sitting on the floor with it's head leaned back, asleep, but 'looking' towards the light. Like it is sunning itself! So cute. Baby animals are just adorable. I can't believe how much they act like guineas already! A friend of mine gave them to me, when they were about 12 hours old. They were so calm. I woke up the next morning, and they were running around scared to death! Silly birds!

    I love to see keets sleep! The first time I saw one all stretched out with its legs straight behind it I thought it was dead. Enjoy this phase.
