Well, tomorrow, day 14, is when I am pulling them and putting them in a brooder and hand feeding them, between 7 and 14 days is normal time to pull them for hand feeding so that way they get Mom's antibodies. If left with Mom she'll feed them for about 6-7 weeks, unless Mom lays another clutch, then she'll push babies from the nest as early as 4-5 weeks. (Lily isn't having more babies, for he record! LOL) Keets fledge at around 5-6 weeks, but won't eat fully on their own til about 7-8 weeks.
