The Country Diary of a GenX Woman

About 8 hours old

This is keet number one all dried off and looking very cute with its big orange feet and little stubby wings. 20140312_100919  I have found these cheap $6 polypropylene door mats to be the best for the brooder box, they have a good non slip surface to help them walk, they are woven tightly so that they can’t pick at it, they are ribbed so even if water gets spilled the keets can stay dry and they are easy to hose down and clean.   When the birds move to the bigger brooder, I have a mat in half the box for them to sleep on and line the rest with cardboard.
