    My 20 w.o. pullets LOVE playing in the dirt. They peck it, scratch it, eat it, roll in it, lay in it, fluff in it. They can't get enough dirt it seems. I wish I could capture their expressions of pure ecstasy in a photo...

    We call this section of the chicken yard, "The Spa Corner".

    Yep I can see it on that red one's face. It says, "Oh yeah, OH yeeeeeah, yeah, right there's the spot! Nothing like some good dirt, mmmm, mmm!"

    Or............that's what went through my head, anyway.
