Dustbathing chickens are pretty special.

For this brief moment in time, everyone loves one another. They come together in a sunbeam and some dusty soil, and turn into a clot of churning, feathery zen.

Seen here:
Moa and Chickadee, Barred Plymouth Rocks.
Kua, the “Golden Comet” Red sex-linked hen.
Willow, the Easter Egger.
Part of both Mildred, the black cochin, and Lorp, the Black Australorp.
And, finally, Baron Rufflerump, the blue Cochin rooster.

Taro the violet chinchilla shows off how to take the perfect dust bath!

Problem 1: A glasshouse at the very end of the season, full of bugs and old plants, in dire need of a tidying up.
Problem 2: Hungry chickens wanting a holiday in cold weather and some quality bonding time with their human.
Solution: Gather up the chickens and put them in the glasshouse for a few days and let the scratching commence. Many bugs were eaten, many dustbaths were enjoyed, and a good time was had by all.
Permaculture: The problem is the solution!
