    At what age do keets start flying? They jump really high already, I love watching them randomly freaking out. They're like little speedy supermen! At what age is called flying? :)

    mine flew pretty early. We were holding them and playing and one flew from our and to the curtains, about 4 ft. Then another flew to a chair, about 5 ft. They were about 3 to 4 weeks old if I remember right. Keep something on the top so they do not get out of the brooder and get trapped somewhere. [​IMG]

    Usually by 2 weeks old (if raised on high protein feed so they feather quicker), they can pretty effectively become airborne that soon. From that point on they just get better at it.
