    My broody hatched out six chicks this past weekend. On Monday I let momma hen and her brood out of their safe confined location, into the hen yard to free range. I had penned the other birds out in the chicken pasture so as not to harm the little ones. Momma hen proceeded to dig herself a hollow and wallowed in it, taking a long needed dust bath. And you know what the little ones did? Exactly the same, little day old chicks, laying in the dirt and with their tiny, little feet scratching up dirt and throwing it up on themselves. I was sitting on a chair that I have in the hen yard, watching. When the little ones began to dust bathe I had to laugh out loud. Sooo cute. I had never seen that before. Momma hen got starteled by my laughing. I'm going out there now to see if I can capture that on camera.
