keets update...........

The baby keets are going very well.........
8 went in with Mum in the cage.........
the "dead" one fluffed it's wings when we were catching the others and is doing very well now........can't hardly tell it from the other good one that went under the house.........as the "dead" one bounced back to life we decided it was not good enough to go back with Mum........possible could now but my Pop always said stick them in after dark...........well I am not so keen to take on Mother Guinea fowl as she is one protective cranky mother and I am NOT going into her cage.............
Day 2 above and day 3 below..........
The bubbas in the house box...........

  1. What little cuties!
    We once had a few of our rescue chooks lay a huge clutch of eggs up in the rafters of our hayshed on top of the bales. We heard cheeping, so my son and I spent half an afternoon carefully getting the bales down and rounding up day old chicks. We didn't lose one of them. There was more than a dozen and about 30 eggs up there (that were very carefully disposed of when it was clear that the ones that hatched were it.
    We had a gorgeous little bantam that had three of her own. She took on the others, It was so funny to see her all fluffed out with all these heads poking out from under her wings. The fosters grew so much more quickly than her little mites, but she was such a good mum and did really well teaching them to be chickens. :)
    There is nothing more handy than a clucky, feisty bantam hen.
