Funny Dusty Chicken Story
The weird weather has meant spending one day in doors with the fire roaring and then the next sitting outside in the sun with record
high temperatures for March in Vermont. On one of the nice days this week I was able to walk down to the mailbox in only a t-shirt and my pants and slippers.
There was one of the local farmer newsletters in the mail that day so I decided to enjoy the weather for a moment and so I sat down on the steps. Out from under the porch popped one of our chickens. She is always getting out of the coop run and exploring the area!
She so sweetly came onto the steps with me to keep me company. Apparently she had just had a VERY nice dust bath because she shook herself off right next to me creating a dust storm that left me covered!
I moved to shake myself off and had to laugh out loud when I saw my footprints left on the steps with all her dust settled around them! Not sure if you can see it in the photo above, but it was nice to be laughing in the sunshine with my dusty chicken!
There is the pretty culprit below that got me dusty (the white one of course!). She brought out a friend to help dig in the dirt!
