Just Call Her 'Dusty'
Chickens and dust baths go together like peanut butter and jelly. My chooks prefer to use the pine mulch we worked so hard to chip this winter while I prefer they use the area behind the barn or, better yet, the driveway.
Sweet Pea was a good girl and used the driveway this evening. She had a hard time deciding where to plant her fluffy butt but once she did she really went to town. She spent a good 15 minutes stirring up the dust. Roo stood guard until she finished despite the fact that he was missing the frog hunt going on at the edge of the pond. He's a good rooster and looks out for the girls.
Roo let out a few crows as Silver lead the rest of the flock around the pond. You can hear Silver in the background.
When Sweet Pea was finished she was a White Plymouth Rock! Doesn't she look pleased?
