    So cute! They look so tiny, the photo looks like you have them in an old-fashioned coffee can! Come to think of it, you could probably fit several keets in an old-fashioned coffee can...

    (yes, I know it isn't one. I'm not accusing you of keet overcrowding) [​IMG]
  5. [​IMG] LOL not a coffee can but a big watering trough like they have at TSC....great for brooding....it's what i had for my chickens when they were chicks.........but i am finding out these are gonna take alot more time but they are cute...

    [​IMG] O my gosh they are so very hyper i expected them to be like my chicks were..........so very different fast little things!

    They are cuties... We just started getting white ones and lavender this year too.
    Wait until they begin flying which won't be long at all. LOL
    My DW came home from the feed store yesterday and had a Keet peeping at her on the floor as she entered the door.
    Hard to believe the 4 dogs and however many of the 10 cats were indoors at the time didn't find it first.

    When they're in the incubator and you go to take them out they always remind me of little bugs the way they run around. Really fast, but cute.

    You should try catching Button Quail in the incubator.
    They're the size of a bumble bee when they hatch. LoL

  10. Ooh you have some white ones!

    Hatching *anything* is such fun!

    I think all of my 5 new babies are pearls. (Only 4 are in this pic.) Though one has a bit more white on its belly... might be a [light] gray.
