If I can track down another pure pair I can split the new male up with the old female and vice versa. My cinnamons on the other hand are'nt going to well. I have had heaps hatch but once they hit around 2 1/2 3 weeks the are duying on me.

I used to separate the Cinnamon & Silver from the rest in their own brooder/s. The other colours too boisterous, pushing the more fragile Cinnamon & Silver keets around, pecking @ times, & the red-eyed keets didn't seem to be able to cope.

If using a light bulb for heat/light use the ones that emit a softer light, I think they were called pearl, not clear glass, & lower wattage. Not up with the other coloured bulbs but they may be useful too.

Small numbers per brooder helped. Sprinkle a bit of feed around on the floor additional to that in their feeder initially to help get them started with feeding. Feed & water containers should be easily accessible, & plentiful.

It all helps.
