Chickens Communal Dust Bath

As the weather starts warming up the ladies have some favorite ways to cool down. The dirt is still moist and cool in the shade. What better way to cool down than a cool dust bath with friends?!┬áIt’s also a great way to kick out any bugs or parasites trying to take hold.

For me it’s a nice way to spend a hot evening. Sitting back watching hens dust bathe. It’s almost hypnotic! It’s also a nice way to forget about a bad work day.

My next goal for the summer is to plop down a lounge chair, pour myself a glass of coconut water and sit back to watch the ladies free ranging. It’s so relaxing.

Just for you, I’ve uploaded a video of the ladies dust bathing on their YouTube channel so you too can relax and enjoy.

Have Fun!
