I‘ve been out doing a lot of yard cleanup the past week and our two chickens, Beulah and Penelope like to help so I let them run free. Unfortunately they tend to spend most of their time with me, usually right under my feet where ever I go. They took some time off today to preen and have a dirt bath so I took some shots.
Penelope, the Rhode Island Red. The adventuresome one and a true survivor.
A rescue chicken who came to us after escaping from her former home three times.
Checking her undercarriage.
Beulah, the Plymouth Barred Rock. The thinker of the pair.
A glimmer of chicken intelligence behind those eyes I think – just waiting to get out.
Bath time – always best in the full sun.
Bathing entails a lot of dirt throwing, rolling and shaking. It helps control mites and somehow must feel nice.
