    I kid you not,, he started his bath before lunch, was still bathing when I got home and on into the afternoon. He started on a nice level flat area in the dirt and ended up with a hole over 6 inches deep! After he was done everyone else went over and took a quick dust, but I just watched him through the window, and changing the waters, and doing other things for most of the two hours. He was so happy and contented, even when Big Sissy tried to take his dirt bath away, he didn't let her! And no, he's not dead lol he's just in Heaven!

    He looks SO happy! He must have found exactly the right spot for a warm, relaxing "soil spa" treatment.

    It was just so funny watching all the others walk around him and watch it was almost like watching a peep show lol! They would stand there and circle and talk, I could just imagine what they were saying: "Ok, what's in the hole?" "He looks awful happy in there!" "Ok, that's it,, he's lost it,," "Just look at him! Shameful carrying on like that", "He's on drugs,, he has to be! His eyes aren't even focused!!" "Should we call one of his hens to come get him?"

    Blue Roo is a big baby, but he's so lovable and I just get the biggest kick out of some of his antics.
