At 8 days old the keets are noticeably bigger. Their wings are growing and they can even jump and fly for a few inches at a time.
A keets’ wing growth at 4 days old and a keets’ wing growth at 8 days old. What a difference!
They eat like little piggies.
Be prepared to keep the keets’ brooster clean several times daily. Here are the keets in a freshly cleaned cage. But not for long; take a look at the photos below...
After only 2 hours, these keets were busy! I have spotted several keets that get a thrill out of using their feet to scratch the feed out of the feeder. They also somehow managed to get an end of a paper towel in the water so the water siphoned out of the water feeder.
