    I brought home 5 keets yesterday. They're all nearly a week old. They really are adorable, until bedtime. Within minutes of going to bed one pie keet starts peeping-- LOUDLY. It amazes me that such a big noise can come from something so small. It keeps going until I come out here and sit with them, preferably while typing. I don't get it. I've tried lights on, lights off. They have food and water, clean bedding, heat, cool, everything they could want, but this one little butt-munch just wants typing. It's the only thing that shuts it up. Five minutes ago it was hollering because I tried to lay down. Right now it's quiet. When I finish typing this and try to lay down again, it'll start all over again. I think I'm going to lose my mind!!

    I know how you feel.. i had a chicken chick in me last hatch that was the same way.. all day and all night she just would not stop chirping.. she would only sleep for 5 to 10mins on and off during the day and CHIRP CHIRP CHIRP and she never went to sleep at night all night CHIRP CHIRP CHIRP while the others are sleeping.. i swear sometimes i dream about culling her LOL! but i didn't... i just move the brooder to the other end of the house way WAAAAY on the other end night i kinda still heard the chirping but itwasn't as bad or as loud... i know skeets are louder than chickens but this idea may work?

    the ticking of the clock may settle it down?
    worth a shot if you can sleep at night.
