    And OMG are they loud. I'm hoping it's just shipping stress but my hatched keets are much better behaved. [​IMG] These are keets I ordered before I tried my hand at hatching - too late to cancel the order so now I am overrun with keets! I'm putting an ad up this weekend. LOL. Aren't they cute? [​IMG] I'm definitely keeping some of them!

    Only 4!? I feel like such a glutton. I have 37 now! (cackle sent an extra). I'd love to have a royal purple. Maybe next year. [​IMG] My post office called me at 6:20AM. Thankfully I am an early riser.

    I started with eight 'production' chickens (RIR/Leghorn) because you know, I want eggs. Then I decided I needed 'cute and friendlier' chickens so now I have 6 more colorful breeds to go with them AND two coops. My husband insists we need guineas to patrol our 25+ tick infested acres so I ordered 15 a long time ago and decided to try hatching a few for giggles and to test out my incubator. Thanks to a wonderful BYC member who sent great eggs I hatched out 21, which was about 15 more than I expected. Now I am overrun in birds! [​IMG] It's chicken math, I tell ya!

    They are very cute looking keets and arrived in good health in 1.5 days. I can't comment further but I have heard good things about Cackle. [​IMG] It's odd tho, they would not let me order chickens and keets in the same order when I emailed them and I had to get 15! I guess they changed their policy since then.
