In the Brooder
- May 31, 2010
My now 5 day-old keet looks like he was born yesterday. The other keets he hatched with are at least twice his size. he doesn't seem to be able to see well( if at all). The other keets scatter when I reach into the brooder while he appears to just try to follow their noise. I don't know if he drinks in the brooder. I take him out several times a day, put a waterer in front of him and he seems to know what's there. After he drinks,(takes 3 to 4 sips) he nearly topples over backward lifting his head back to swallow. I've seen him at the feeder in the brooder, picking up the feed but I can't beleive he eats it because he's still so tiny. He does poop though. Any help/advice appreciated. I've grown very attached to Peewee.
