Love At First Keet (Pic)

    A much happier story this time. Here is my first healthy little keet, 1 day old. Too bad he's all alone, but there are two other eggs that may or may not hatch - hopefully he will have a buddy soon.

    These are three eggs that spent all but the last eight days of their incubation at a temp a few degrees too low. Once I got edumacated by all of you knowledgable people, I turned it up. This little guy did fine, but has two other little eggheads not doing too much to try to hatch. We'll see. Meanwhile, he really loves his mirror.

    And good gosh, Keets are feisty, aren't they? He just about flips a biscuit every time I show up to check on him - he jumps a mile and runs and tumbles and fusses.

    Cute lil Pearl grey keetsie there [​IMG] Congrats!

    And yes, keets scatter like cockroaches... lol. The wild blood never leaves them, no matter how many generations are domestically bred.
