    I bought 5 keets about a month ago. I was buying some silkies and the lady had keets too. 4 of the 5 have survived. All my chickens, ducks, and keets are free range during the day. Locked in the coop at night. They are soooo fun to watch. At night about 45 minutes before the go in the coop to sleep they get on top of the coop. They run back and forth and make tons of noise. It is so funny. They all stick together and seem to follow the ducks around during the day. At night the sleep with the chickens. I was shocked at how well those little things can fly!! I have no clue if I have males or females. I have 1 pearl and 1 pie pearl. The other 2 I don't know what color they are. Anyways, I just wanted to share how much I love them!!
