I've had chickens for some time now. I know chickens do some strange things but there is always a reason..... usually. I would like to know why chickens sun bath. Honestly, it's been so unbelievably hot yet the goofy birds will sun bath. What is the purpose of this???? Are they trying to lighten their feathers? tanning inbetween the feathers? tanning there feet? Should I break out the sunblock???? naahhhh, just kidding. I just find it odd that they will just plop down and stretch out in the sun. I almost feel like getting them a towel or a tiny lawn chair! Sunglasses maybe?
