Sunbathing chickens look so incredibly stupid. I almost beat the dog into the moon until I found out the dead chicken in her pen was just playing silly buggers. Luckily the moment I screamed, "LOLA WHAT THE EFF DID YOU DO!?" the chicken jumped up and ran. And my poor dog was so upset.
I did much the same thing, my poor pup Sirius was so scared when I yelled at him, but then the chicken in question got up and wandered over to me in search of treats... Poor Sirius, he always catches the blame.
First time I saw my chickens dustbathing, I had just spent half an hour looking for them and wasn't sure whether to be scared out of my mind or angry. When I found them lying upside down and rolling around I thought they were dying. That did NOT help my nerves.
