LOL!

 

I have one chick who does this.  I came here to research it because she is so lethargic right after she covers herself in dirt.  The other two chicks don't do this much.  Her name is May, but I'm thinking about renaming her Pig Pen.  I'm glad it's normal behavior.  She's not really dying this time, lol :)
