    I raised my first clutch of keets, now 4 months old.
    Occasionally I see a behavior I haven't noticed in the adults.
    They bow their head to the ground and back up, full-speed.

    They are trying to get another bird to engage in a game of chase.
    It is a funny thing to watch for sure.

    Here is a video in case some folks have not yet seen it going on.
