    Dust bathing is one of the funniest behaviors that chickens do - and one of the most essential to their well-being. I've just put up a youtube video of my hen, Buffy, bathing (And a cameo appearance by the her lop-earred rabbit friend, Candy.) If you've ever tried to explain dust bathing to a non-chicken person, you might want to send them to the video.
