Chicken spa!

I was home early today (to meet the A/C technician). He said the birds wouldn't bother him if I let them out, so I did.
I brought them back from the neighbors yard with meal worms and sat down to watch chicken television. After watching the larger flock I turned and didn't see the smaller one.
Ugh, they must be in the neighbors yard again. Nope!
They were between the azaleas. They turned it in to a spa, with 8 dust baths!
They are so stinking cute!
I'm just curious, what did your hen to rooster ratio end up like from the Tractor Supply bantam bin?

I tend to pick feather legged bantams. My daughters go by color and cuteness factor.
