    [​IMG] My chickens are out there taking dust bathing to a new level. They have combined it with a mud bath. It rained for a minute, just enough to dampen the top 1/8" of dirt, and they're out there along their fence line kicking it up and rolling around in it like crazy. They have the dirt a-flyin out there [​IMG]

    Crazy girls! I noticed while it was 'raining' they all ran out of the house (I think they went in to get out of the smoke) and started scratching around while it was raining. [​IMG]
