Growing Like Weeds!

The chicks are doing well, they are definitely growing a lot faster than I thought they would! They went from this fuzzy cuteness Imagethey are only a few days old here. This is Cupcake on the left and Katy on the right.

To this: Image 
in two short weeks! HA! That is Scarlett in the back ground along with one of the Husband’s ducks. I’m pretty sure that Katy is a Leghorn.. not so sure is she is actually a SHE yet or not.. Scarlett is a buff orpington and I am fairly certain we have a hen here.  

 

One thing that I’ve learned about the ducks is just how messy they are! I am not a fan wet/damp anything in the first place. These ducks will do anything they can to spill their water. They get into the water bowl/feeder/bowl/pan.. anything I’ve tried. They splash, spill and fill it with food, wood chips and POO! I had to separate them from the chicks, I feel that the wetness of the ducks could effect the chickens in a negative way. Chickens DO NOT like being wet! Also their bodies will absorb water, living together has gotten pretty dirty..
