What a difference a week makes.

The Chicks and Daffy are just over 2 weeks old now. They have to be the fastest growing animals
known. I swear everyday they double in size and Daffy triples! He was the same size ball of fuzz as the chicks 2 weeks ago. He's kind of left them in the dust now. But the chicks are holding their own.
These guys are so messy. No wonder they call them fouls. They foul their water 100 times a day. All I seems to do is clean their water & feed. I can't wait for the next couple of weeks when the temps finally go UP and they feather out, and out to the coop they go. Then I'll worry about if they are OK all night long.

The crops are coming along nicely. All these plants I've grown under the grow light for the past 6 weeks plus the ones I bought Saturday from the local high school AG dept, should round out our garden nicely. Let's just say we are going to be very heavy on the tomatoes this year.

Let's not forget my small crop of Yorkie. He's not been introduced to the chicks yet. I'm afraid his fierce killer instinct may terrorize them.

And last but certainly not least. A Boy enjoying the not really spring yet weather. But any chance to ride his beloved 4 wheeler. Maybe he can use it to herd the chickens & the Yorkie.
