Well yesterday our keets came in at the postoffice. They got put in a box in the house, but it was too small a box and the light was too strong, so I put them in the brooder with 2 lightbulbs. I figured that if the light was too strong, they would have more room to get away from it. Well last night they were near the bulb, so I figured they were cold and I told my husband to deal with it. He lowered the lights. They were fine this morning but this afternoon I found one dead and one with a red, swollen eye and groogy. It was strong enough to fight to get away from me, but it seemed to have a deathwish. It kept getting away from the light. I put some antibiotic ointment, to help with the reddness and to make it taste terrible. I also put the ointment on all the parts that might be first attacked if I have a case of cannabolism. Well I decided to get an ICU unit ready, so the cardboard box with light got set up again and I went to check on the keet and it was laying down, but alive. Well I put him right under the light and I think he may have died in transport. The hatchery did send me an extra, so I lost 2 and now have 14, which is still good, if I don't lose anymore. I was hoping I could save him. I am usually good at nursing things back. I figured it was just self inflicted hypothermia. It was very warm today in my neck of the woods. I was soaking wet when I was finished my afternoon chores, so I wouldn't think I would need that much extra warmth. Well I nailed some empty feed sacks around the brooder to keep a warm temp and hopefully we will be out of the woods very soon, but I am a bit discouraged.
