This chicken likes to lay her egg in the faraway layer every morning, in peace and quiet from all her friends.
Now we caught her running back to join them.
The Hilltops Egg Farm Spa Salon is open, located in a beautiful shaded area near the dry creek, with a view of the hills. Our ladies chose the spot themselves. They enjoy taking turns in the dust baths, while the Maremma dogs keep watch and make sure the ladies are not disturbed during their healthy hygiene ritual.
Dust bathing is crucial for the chickens' health: dust cleans the feathers and absorbs excess moisture and oil from the skin. Dust bathing kills parasites attached to the chickens' skin by covering them with a fine coat that blocks their breathing, causing them to suffocate.
