Actually I’ve come to dread going into the animal yard with a camera. Why? Because I end up with like a bazillion photos. These guys, er gals, are just too fun to be around.
So this time around Jordanne took the camera into her possession and snapped a few photos
You just saw synchronized preening and here’s another sport our hens love to do in the afternoons – dust bathing. It’s all about beauty and bliss. Why do critters have it so easy! Darned if I know.
What’s all the commotion?
It’s dust bath time! Of course, Lucie is the first to start the mid afternoon ritual.
Frontside, now the backside – ahhh that feels good.
Sairey joins in. Get that dust under those long and purty feathers of yours.
Rolling over, got to get the back.
Ah, pure bliss.
Blackberry watches the bathing beauties and their cleaning routine.
Watching the animals taking care of themselves, got me thinking. Then talking it over with sis, saying we got to be back into our “taking care of ourselves” routine that went out the window these last two years because we were just too darn busy or tired. I know, I know no excuses, but – but! This year gonna steal some time and do some stretching/yoga or whatever you call it. Either that or will be sleeping with Mr Hotwater bottle for a very long time.
