The chicks and ducklings continue to grow.
The chicks and ducklings continue to be adorable.
I can't hardly stand it.
Here is a picture of the chicks that I promised you from last week.
The goldish ones are the Buff Orpingtons, the whiter ones are the Cornish Rocks.
Don't get too used to those Rocks, they'll only be with us another six or seven weeks.
Well, they'll still be with us, but in the freezer or on the table, not in the barn.
And here is a picture of the ducklings. See the one on the right with the afro? That's the crested runner I was telling you about that I got by accident.
I love her.
Her days might be numbered, though. This morning I put them in the kiddie pool for the first time.
I no sooner put her in then she started flopping all around, twisting and writing like she was possessed.
I think she confused exercise with exorcise.
So I immediately picked her up, and her head continued to spin around.
I put her back in her hutch and she started flopping and twisting and spinning in her bedding.
But I turned my attention to another duckling that had gotten out of the pool and wedged into a little impossible to reach space, and by the time I got her squared away, the crested was upright and looking pretty OK.
I think maybe she had an anaphylactic reaction to water.
I have a duck that's allergic to water.
Here are the other three ducklings acting like normal ducklings do when they are placed in water.
This one saw her sister freaking out and just said,
It came out sounding more like a little quack, but I knew what she meant.
