    The other day it was 90+ degrees here with 90% humidity and not a puff of air stirring. I had let the girls out and was running around doing my hot weather prep (ice in the waterer, veggies from the freezer) when I turned around and saw this...

    Two of these sun worshipers are in the midst of molting. Should I have offered them sunblock? [​IMG]

    Ah yes they really have a way of making you feel stupid don't they? LOL Sunblock may be in order...they can sunburn. [​IMG]


    But I am sure they appreciated having ice water and cool veggies after their sun worshipping. [​IMG]

    Obviously you failed as a chicken parent and didn't teach them the dangers of the sun. [​IMG]

    The self-tanner component would be pretty funny. At least it wouldn't leave weird purple stains, like pick-no-more lotion!
