    We used to call them the little zoom-zooms. They are lightning fast!

    They're not just fast - they can jump! If you're not real careful they'll be out of the incubator and running around the house. They're cute and funny and fun. They get their feathers real quick and fly out of the brooder long before the chickens even think about it. The word 'baby' really sort of doesn't fit.

    I had one jump out the the brooder in the basement yesterday. Took me over an hour to find it. They are really good at hiding and not making a sound. The little booger:/

    yes! one of my guinea keets tried to jump out of the incubator! I love watching them run backwards and then fall on their backs. They are precious little boogers
