    Saw my pullets take a dirt bath today! This was after she dug a hole and sat in it for awhile. It was so funny! She was rolling around in the dirt and rubbing her head in it! I never knew chickens laid down on their sides until today![​IMG]

    Mine also had their first dust bath today. They sure are cute when they take dust baths and plus it is good for them to ward off any lice or mites they may have.
