    Cool, I got keets from them and I really like their customer service. Keets are cute too. [​IMG]

    I thought that their last keet hatch was this week, though it's possible they've got some leftovers. Lots of people on the board can help with keet info. The main difference I've found is feeding them a bit more protein. I also think they are a bit more sensitive to temperature fluctuations.

    I am keeping them with my chickens. Some people said they've had problems with bullying the chickens but others haven't had any problems.

    I see it as one grand experiment! [​IMG]
