Please view large…Tilly and her little brood enjoying a dust shower… the little chicks are not quite sure what to make of the shower of dirt… but it won’t be long before they are enjoying the process… Tilly was very excited to have a dust bath… after sitting on the nest for nearly a month she was overjoyed to find sand to bath in… The little ones only 3 days old now looked so cute with their dust covered fluff… There is something so special about baby animals… they are hard to resist… Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35 Southland New Zealand September 2012

It’s Raining Dirt…. Sussex Family

The Sussex chicken is a dual purpose breed that originating in England around the time of the Roman conquest of Britain in AD 43 that is a popular backyard chicken in many countries. They come in eight colors (with a couple more being developed) A Sussex breed club was formed in 1903. The light Sussex has a white body with a black tail and black wing tips. Its neck is white, striped with black and has a very striking appearance. The feathers around the neck are called hackle feathers and each one is black with a fine white lace around the edge. The buff is ginger where the light is white. If showing the bird, a person must be careful to keep it out of strong sunlight, as the color will fade. The Silver Sussex has a similar neck to the previous two variants, except that the body is black and the majority of the feathers on the body have silver lacing.
