I haven’t shared any pictures of our chickens since they were a month old, so I thought I’d snap a few today. They’re now 3.5 months old, and as mischievous as ever. I’ve had to take several breaks from writing this to steer them away from my pumpkin and tomato vines – apparently they’re today’s special. Usually they’re content to munch on my weeds, but you do have to keep an eye on them.
When I let them out this afternoon, a bath was their first order of business. If you’ve never seen a chicken bath before, it’s funny stuff, and involves lots and lots of dirt. Here’s how it works:
1. Take one clean looking bird.
2. Roll her around in some dirt until she looks absolutely filthy.
3. Then, shake out all that dirt, and send her off to eat something she shouldn’t.
