Our Second Keet Hatch... and Don't Forget the Lehman's Country Giveaway!

Our first pearl guinea - isn't she just precious?!
We'll just say it's going much better than the last hatch.  Since about 3 a.m., we've had 4 keets hatch out!

And yes, the brooder light is secured by the ginormous nail that hubby pounded into the windowsill last time...

And this time we've got our first pearl keets - so far we've got 2 pearls and 2 lavenders.

First two keets - one pearl, one lavender

There are still 10 eggs in the incubator - I hear chirping behind me right now, need to check... yep, #5 is starting to bust outta his shell!

I've got to go take a nap before work today.  Couldn't sleep once I woke up at 3:15 a.m.  I wonder why.

  1. I'm glad to see that your second hatch is going better than the first. I never was involved with hatching. We always got our birds from the feed store in a box with holes in it. It always amazed me that more didn't die on route but those little birds were pretty hardy I guess.

    I hope you continue to have a great hatch.

  2. Oh my gosh! They are adorable!!!!
    Have a great day, Susan :)
