|Brie and Beatrice... BFF's|
So, Brie treated the hens to an extra long free range, and, thanks to the melted snow, they frolicked in their first dust bath in over two months. (Very useful in reducing parasites, such as lice, that make life for chickens rather unbearable.)
The hens stretched out their colorful plumage, flapped their wings vigorously and warmed their fluffy backsides in the sunshine. Aaaahhhh.
|Ever Watchful, Isis|
It's never a dull moment with these fine, feathered ladies, and especially for Brie, who happily poses with them during playtime. Lady Gaga, our Polish hen, is looking more outrageous than ever. I keep meaning to trim back that crazy bouffant so that she can see a bit better, but just don't have the gumption.
