geese, ducks, chickens OH MY!

Our newest farm tenants are growing fast and have to be moved to their new and more permanent home (there's a duck in with the chicks, really, can you find it?!). The geese have tripled in size in less than 2 weeks and act as though they were full grown. It's cute now because they're not nearly as intimidating as they will be when they're full grown and making an obscene amount of racket while threatening to pinch you with their beak at every turn.
The ducks are the very opposite, sweet and gentle, each with a bit of their own personality. The chicks, well they're just little chickens and I don't find to have as much character as ducks and geese, but they are still very cute. 
Today we are going to "teach" the ducks to swim. I don't think there will be much teaching going on, I think swimming is a pretty innate skill for any age duck, but it should be fun to watch.
