    I have a hen that is always going into the outdoor water pan. She tracks mud and stuff into the water and just stands there! [​IMG] None of the others ever do this. I don't know if somethings wrong? Is it a sign of something? Or she just likes clean feet!! What do you think?

    I used to give mine shallow pans with a big chunk of ice in them in the summer. They stand in the water to cool off.

    Or maybe your hen just likes standing in the water. [​IMG]

    Maybe she wishes she were a duck.

    I call my 3 Speckled Sussex girls the beach babes because they come running when they hear the water hose turn on or the sound of me dumping water from a waterer on the ground. [​IMG]
