Dirty chickens

Dontcha just love watching chickens take dirt baths? I do. Cracks me up!

We've had a break in the weather and a bit of sunshine lately. The ladies sure are enjoying it!

Some well used dirt holes there.

Have a great weekend!

Mine root around under the coop. So much so that one side kind of fell in and I had to move it.

I asked the hens for help. They weren't into it.

Freeloaders.

Hey! I've been thinking about you and LJ. We're supposed to have beautiful weather all weekend, and we're spending it out in the yard, moving things around. Congrats on your soap win!

Yes, I love to watch them take dust baths. Almost makes me want to join them. They always look so content when they bask in the hole they just made.

Our chickens have a few favourite spots for dust baths, and it's all well and good until they go for a dustbath on a rainy day. Which sounds impossible, but two of their favourite hangouts are under shelter. So they get all wet in the rain, then go for a dust bath. Rain + dust bath = very dirty chicken.
