Watch a Hen Dustbathe!
Did you know that chickens stay clean and defend themselves against parasites by taking dust-baths? It’s true! Some birds use water (like pigeons), while others prefer dirt, like chickens. One of our super-heroine hens, She-Ra, shows you how it’s done. Two years ago, She-Ra lived in a cage so small, she couldn’t even flap her wings. She was exploited for egg production and faced death by gassing if we hadn’t intervened and saved her and 1,500 of her flock-mates.
