the keets update.............

Can you believe these little guys are jut over a month old now.........
A few hours old..............
2 days old..............
2 days old 
10 days old..............
12 days old.......they grew so fast...........feathers forming so quickly............
24 days old.........
we tried to put the inside babies out with Mumma............we put one in and she tried  to kill it......she was attacking it madly so we had to rescue it quickly........
 it was in shock a bit but ok and survived..............
the 2 inside babies have now been moved out to the cage with the gular..........

33 days old now.......above and below...........
we have another one set on some eggs somewhere we but not sure of her whereabouts but somewhere near the hay stack I think..............will be difficult to find her........she's been on the nest for about 2 weeks now so will have to keep looking and see if we find her.........we'll know when she hatches as the others will be carrying on like idiots.............lots of noise.....
or maybe she will be like the 2 previous nesting and they sit and sit and sit and nothing hatches............
Catch you later.......

  8. Boy, they're getting big! I can't remember why you had to separate them though -- and are these a common farm animal in Australia?
