    Okay children, pay attention. The dirt has to be just right, not too wet, not too dry.

    First you roll over, then flap your wings and throw the dirt over your back.

    You children are lucky, you're encouraged to play in the dirt! My boys, where are my boys???

    We're here, Mommy, we're too tired to dust bathe any more and this sun feels so good after all the rain last week!

    By the way, two-legged Mommy had to look close to make sure they weren't dead!

    [​IMG] Too Cute! It's nice to know even chicken's children don't follow instructions.
