Reaching For New Heights

Well, the guinea keats are just 3 weeks old and already they are flying and getting around like more mature birds. When I went into their house last evening to fill their food and water, I found three of them on the top rung of their ladder perch. By the time I snapped this photo, one had hopped down, rung by rung and was almost at the bottom and a second had flown right down; leaving one remaining keat on the top...

Look very closely and you will see one remaining light colored keat on the top of the ladder and the darker keat on the bottom rung. What wacky birds they are....always performing some sort of crazy antic. Obviously, no fear of heights in these youngsters!


  1. They are so cute. Ours arrived Thursday the 6th. I was amazed how loud they were. We have lost 1 so far. I feel that is a good number. Great keet house.

  2. You are such an inspiration to me. I love to check in on your blog and see what you are doing and learn from your example.


  3. Thank you Shannon for your sweet sentiment! I am so glad you stop by to visit. It is this beautiful world that surrounds us that is the true inspiration!!

  4. Yes indeed, and as a life long city dweller that has only gotten out to rural life in the last two years.... you are helping to show me the way to make it successful and fun too.
