    I was surprised when mine did [​IMG] I found these pics on my camera and I forgot to upload them [​IMG] It was a nice day and I NEVER see my roosters dustbathe or sun themselves that often. I only remember seeing them do it as chicks. I hope you guys enjoy! [​IMG] (I snuck a few hens in here as well [​IMG] lol)

    Nope. My boys NEVER dust-bathe. They're going to be the first to get infected with external parasites-I know it. [​IMG] They much prefer guard-duty.

    Thank you for the pics. Made me smile. [​IMG]

    Great pics!

    To answer your question, mine does!
    The ladies were all in the yard the other day and I had to go searching for him. He was under the coop dustbathing. I told him several times how silly he looked.
