chicks in the sun


This is the life.  Mirabelle takes a dustbath, while Chloe digs.

I was sitting next to them, and had a lovely rain of dirt fall on me every time Mirabelle ruffled her feathers.

Here are the chicks, enjoying a dustbath together.

They get really zoned out when they do this.  They are easy to pick up, but heavy with dirt until they shake it out.  They seem to like to get closer to me and shake it out all over me, just like a dog.  Ugh.

purple corn

I got purple corn at Whole Foods.  It's supposed to be sweeter than yellow corn.  I found it had about the same level of sweetness, but with a stronger corn taste.

Fall is here.
