Move to the Coop!
Keets 12 Days Old

Typically the move from inside the house to the coop should be done at 14 days old. In this case I moved them at 12 days. The keets were getting big for their indoor brooster. They were trying to fly and were running into the walls. The weather is just right, we are in the middle of a heat wave with temperatures above 90 F everyday for the next week. A heat lamp will be provided for the nights, which are still above 70 F.

The keets are not so sure of their new home at first. I keep the food and water fairly close to the lamp for the first night and will move them a little father away the second night.

 

After an hour or so the keets seem to be enjoying their new home. They are already looking for bugs to eat.

 

Time to get out the bigger water and food feeder. I still have the smaller feeders out until the keets get use to their new home.

 

   

Notice the cat in the window. Wouldn't he like to get into the coop! BTW, that window has chicken wire across it. Soon the keets will grow big enough that the cats will not try to eat them. The cats will always be curious, but they will not be able to eat a full grown guinea fowl.
