A Chicken Bath

Did you know that chickens take baths?  Dirt baths.  My free range chickens have many spots in our yard where they enjoy the pleasure of flopping around in dirt. 

I can't help but laugh when I see these holes.  One time our farrier, who was trying to attach his chaps and walk at the same time....stepped into one of these holes and almost fell.  I know it was mean to laugh, but I couldn't help it.  So, now when he comes, he looks where he is walking. 

It isn't as funny when it happens to me.

Blessings from Wisconsin.

Hi Jacky! I love to watch our hens 'bathe'! They are so funny! You don't want to be to close when they decide to ruffle their feathers, either! One day when I was feeding them some kitchen scraps, Henny came running up and ruffled her feathers. Dust went flying everywhere! I had me a good 'bath', too! Blessings from Bama!
