    isnt it great to pick up a hen that unbeknownst to you, had just spent the last part of the afternoon dusting herself from head to toe???? Like the dust on your shirt isnt enough, they get wingy and flap to the ground - covering you in dirt.

    Payback for dusting them with DE or some other such thing [​IMG] She's just trying to be sure you don't get mites! [​IMG]

    Yup, been there, done that.

    I agree, better dirt than poo.
