Sounds like a stupid question I know. I got my first keets this morning, and having raised chickens for years, well these are not chickens. They seem much more active, loud, and busy. They are 2 days old. I was just wondering how a content, not hungry, cold or hot keet acted. plus I have not seen them sleep yet. Any words of advice?

When they sleep it will probably scare you to death. They will lay down and have their legs straight out in back of them.

I'm sure they will let you know if their not content. As long as they have plenty of space, food and water and warm temps they should be very happy.

Sounds like everything is fine... they are noisy and busy little things. If the temp is right, they'll keep moving in and out of the heat. If they scatter to the edges, they are too warm and are looking to escape the heat. If you are keeping a light on all the time, they probably won't sleep. Lighting seems to keep them up and active. Heat with no light or a low light heat lamp will encourage them to rest more. ENJOY!
