    I had mama & her 13 chicks locked in their coop for the last few days. I let them out this morning it was so beautiful out & the 1st thing they did was take a bath! Dirt was fying everywhere!

    This little girl decided to bathe by herself.

    Aww... very cute! Even tho they're covered in dirt, I'd still love to hug and squeeze 'em!

    It's my favorite thing to watch them do, too. Noticed my baby Seramas try to do the same thing in their little pickle jar lid of sand [​IMG]
