    So i went to check on my 2 1/2 week old Keets......i know i have 7 but i am only counting 5....so i started looking around and found one of my white ones...snuggled in a corner.....the other black/white was a little bit harder but found it......i have them in a watering trough like they use at TSC as a brooder......they flew out UGH>> so now i used some extra chicken wire to cover the top so they have to stay in there.....you would've thought they would have been cheeping like crazy being away from the others......I would have thought they couldn't fly that early .....[​IMG]

    I had a keet fly out of the brooder box at one week. They are definitely NOT chickens! [​IMG]

    Mine are about 2 weeks old and are flying like crazy! Mine will yell if they are separated from the others for a little bit and then they go into quiet/hiding/survival in the wilderness mode.

    Sunny side up :)
    OMG the first time mine got out of the brooder box it took me half an hour to chase down 2 keets. I had them in the bedroom playing with them that day and they would run under the bed, into the closet, behind the dresser round and round. I had to block off areas to catch them and they could really fly too lol. Little buggers.
