Clean Chickens

Chickens absolutely LOVE to take dirt baths... not my girls, they are clean princesses!

Ha! As soon as Brian and/or I open the door to their roost, they head straight for the dirt pile next to the compost pile.

It's the best of both worlds for them... "lunch" - the worms in the compost pile and "mud bath spa" - the dirt pile.

The dirt bathes are a natural way of controlling lice & mites on them...

and about 20 minutes of entertainment for me... yeah, I have no life.

  1. I love how you caught the chickens taking their bath. Anytime I try to snap a photo my hens pop up thinking I bare gifts of food. I never am able to capture a full blown dust bath. I hope it is okay for me to cite your photo in my blog:)
    My in-laws live in TN. It is a beautiful area!
