More chicken pics

The girls have been rummaging in the garden for the first time. They are a bit thick so it's quite a palarva getting them back in again. They seem to be able to remember how to get OUT but not how to get in. They insist on wedging themselves round the back of the run where I can't reach them, getting in a flap and squarking indignantly.

The middle picture shows them all squashed together in the dust bath. They get in here then start wriggling furiously, flicking the dust over themselves with their wings. This is how they keep clean. I mix louse powder (nice) in the dustbath so they treat themselves for any little nasties.

Rachel, I love the colour of the run - very cool and contemporary. Hope you get lots of lovely eggs.
