When ever I watch a group of our hens having a dust bath together I imagine that they are on a girls' weekend.
You see so many of these groups of girls around Daylesford every weekend and I imagine them doing the same things and having the same conversations as our chooks.
They discuss their husbands, swap recipes, brag about their children and choose where to have their next meal.
I suppose they are having a sort of beauty treatment.
They are filling their feathers full of dust to rid them of mites and lice.
A kind of cut, colour and blow wave.
