    Here's a video of my girls taking a dust bath, I've never seen them all do it together, so I thought it was cute!
    Hope you enjoy!

    they have been cooped up in the run for about 6 weeks due to the hawks & foxes around the neighborhood, so they were more than happy to be out of the run & out free in the yard. I went to round them up & they were all together in the freshly made dust bath, all so happily cooing, I just had to get it on video to share w/ the BYC gang!

    Aaah, lovely! And I was just moaning about how there are no decent/nice chickens videos on youtube in another topic... still upset about the chicken in the pool video... [​IMG] But this is really nice! In good youtube manners, I "liked" your video AND commented... Don't know if you care, but I'm currently starting to videoblog and am busy making myself familiar with internet etiquette [​IMG]

    Euh, without trying to be too pushy, at least I animated an outro involving a chicken, featuring my chicken's voices and the presentation shows a brief glimpse of my girls at the end, if anyone is interested:

    That is adorable. Thank you for posting it. The first time I saw two of mine doing it, I came upon them at a quiet moment. They were so still and twisted up I thought they were dead. Then they started squirming. Total bliss. Bok.
