    I caught all 8 chicks dirt bathing today in the corner of the run. I went back into the house to grab the camera and they did not move an inch when I returned. [​IMG]

    Here is a photo of my run. The coop is inside the garage. We are not quite finished with the run. We are adding more shade this weekend and need to buy more wire for under the lattice on the end. Since there is no more grass in the run, we are adding a door on the other side of the run for the girls to have supervised free range time.

    What a hoot! You'd think they'd know a little better than that. I guess their sesame-seed brains just go on the fritz sometimes.

    What beautiful ladies! The coop inside the garage is a neat idea too. [​IMG]

    Quote:I love the coop in the garage! We 100% insulated it and ran electricity for a heat lamp for the subzero temps! We are hoping to keep it at 40F all winter. I don't have to walk through the snow to clean out the coop, grab eggs or visit my girls. It's also 100% predator proof.

    Mine do that too. I think that they are certain if one starts bathing there that it is the absolute perfect spot and they MUST have that spot also. [​IMG]
