The chicks are growing fast (and the ducks even faster)! They're all running around, drinking lots of water, eating like crazy, scratching and making lots of noise. It appears we got one rooster (the solid white chick). Everyone is doing great and we are eager to get them to their outdoor coop soon.
On Friday, we got 10 guinea keets. They will have a separate "home" from the chickens and ducks. We got them because they're supposed to be really great at eating unwanted pests including ticks. Hopefully they will do good as natural integrated pest management for the garden and fruit trees.
We have some plants happily growing in the sunroom and more started in a tent with grow lights and heated mats in the basement. Congrats to whoever can guess correctly what the little plants are in the two flats...
We finished pruning the apple trees today without injury except for Paul's jeans now have a giant rip down the front and rear.
