    pearls
    lavendar
    pearl/pied

    My pearl grey keets sell for $4 each (up to 2 wks old), all other colors and pieds go for $5 each (up to 2 wks old), after 2 wks old their prices all go up $1, and then another $1 in 2 more wks (if I still have them).

    I also include a ziplock bag of their game bird starter feed and a 6 page keet care info print out with every keet sale.

    I sell all of mine for $2.50 per keet no matter the color. I like them to go fast so I don't have to feed them too long. Some people will sell for more because it's a different color and if you can get it, then great. I could get a higher price but I have a job and can not take care of too many babies of all my breeds so I price them to sell quick.

    Quote:Scrambled eggs, i always start my keets out with what i call the egg ball, scramble the eggs pour them in a bowl ,when it cools ,turn the bowl over in the feeding pan and sprinkle with grower feed and let them have it.
    You have to make sure the eggs are not to runny or it will clog up their little nose holes.
