Hens Dust Bathing Together

Peaches, an older Silkie and daughter Willow are spending quality time having a dust bath together. Peaches hatched this young hatch-a-long pullet in April of this year and they are still inseparable. Her other chicks cut the apron strings  months ago and show no interest in continuing a bond. As a matter of fact, Peaches has been demoted to the bottom of the pecking order by her own adopted babies! Happy she has a friend.

Willow is half Ameraucana, half mystery. Her eggs are olive. Cool!
