I am new to raising chickens and am just having a blast. The other night I made a small corral for my chicks as our yard is not fenced in and let them out. There was a quarter-sized area of dirt in the grass and of course, they found it. the dirt area soon became the size of a basketball and dirt was flying everywhere!!! Then I got the bright idea (???) to add a little water to the hole. I then had mud slingin' going on and the dirtiest chicks ever!!! I couldn't stop laughing. Hope y'all are having as much fun. Who needs to stop and smell the roses when you have chickens. They keep you laughing and put a smile on your face. Have a blessed day!
