    Dumped some spare soil in a wee hole, and the chicks found it and decided it was soft enough to have a dust bath, so all 7 got in and fluffed around.

    Fugly Frizzle decided it was time to try it out as well...

    That is hilarious!! They were so crowded in that hole, it looked like none of them really got to "git down in it"!! [​IMG]

    Poor little Fugly looked like he was taking a chick bath, instead of a dirt bath! [​IMG]

    Too cute!!! [​IMG]

    It is always fun to watch chicks discover something new. [​IMG] Is that last chick coming into view OK? It looked like it was limping.

    Quote:Fuglt Frizzle has alimp on his right leg.

    It's not bumblefoot, I think its scaley leg mites which I'm treating him for. He seems tender around the joint. His legs are quite crusty.
