Bad News Today

I just awoke to a note left by my hubby on the kitchen counter....

Bad news. One of the keets is dead.
The light fell off and was in brooder.
Not sure how long it was like that
but one of the keets was under the light.
I will try to put a screw up there
so that doesn't happen gain.

And so, now, I am sad.  I think it was the first keet who died.  I just visited with the 3 of them last night when I got home from work.  I never did get a photo of the 3 of them together.

I will get a photo of the two who are left later this morning.  The one I helped yesterday is still alive, as is #2.

I don't think any of the other eggs are going to hatch, for reasons unknown.  I will give them until Sunday, which will be the full 28 days incubation.


  1. Oh Susan that's so sad. After reading this post I went back and read the others...they're just so cute aren't they! I put 8 eggs under our continually broody 'Helen From Hell' but only 4 eggs hatched in the end. I left them a week longer too just to see if others would hatch but no such luck. Enjoy your new little ones and I look forward to seeing pictures as they grow. Have a great weekend!

  2. Oh how sad...I'm so sorry that you lost one.

  3. Oh no, so sorry! Just a freak accident. Know you're disappointed.

  4. Let them have a couple extra days just in case...sorry about the loss...

  5. So sorry to hear about the bad news. It's so sad when something like that happens. Hope the others hatch!
