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.
