    [​IMG] Went out to take Miss Chook her lunch-- but, all I find is a dark grey chicken!! She had dug herself a HOLE bout 6 inches deep and looks like she rolled in it for an hour!!! (sigh) Bathtime tonight, I guess!!

    *Says you, Cheekon! I let her hang out in the rain until they issued a tornando warning & and when a lull came, went and got her. Gads! What a messy little drowned rat!! The rain barely made a dent in the dirt on her!! And TWO sinkfuls of baby shampoo 'n water and she ain't much better. She REALLY went to town on THIS dirt bath!!! Silly Goomba!

    do I see shower and blow-dryer on the horizon ?

    maybe when the rain lets up, she'd appreciate a box of "clean" dirt with some food-grade DE in it ...

    * Yeah, something like that, Kaneke. . . I'd actually been thinking about those hardwood ashes some said their birds so loved-- now though I thinking white sand and white kitty litter and white chinchilla dust!!! [​IMG]
