Young things

Well, here are the three new chicks. Notice the big comb already turning pink on the head of the one closest to you? Rooster, 99% sure. Notice the very feminine comb and stance on the one closest to the fence? Hen, 90% sure. The one in the middle could still go either way, but is leaning rooster. Drat! If I am correct I will return the two roosters as arranged, but will need to return all three if I can't get another hen of the same age. So cute though!

Next are the first apples on the goldrush tree. Thought I would show them to you before the birds destroy them all!

Banks, the big dog, caught a vole this morning in its way to the tomato patch. I won't share that photo! Thanks Banks for a job well done.
