Chickens Taking A Sand Bath Video

The spring thaw has arrived on the homestead.  The hens are really enjoying the spring thaw.  Our sunroom overhangs from the house and there's a nice 2 foot high space where the ground is all sand.  This gives them a nice space to run around in winter.  Occasionally we taken them out and put them under there to get some exercise.  They won't go out over the snow on their own.

Here's an excellent video of the hens taking a sandbath.  You can hear the happy sounds they make, sounds like purring.

I've already seen a few little bugs flying around outside, maybe the girls will find a tasty treat.
