Finally got some POL chucks this monday in one day one has started nearly half burying her self dust bathing. the question is does this mean they have fleas or somthing worse. Or is she just glad to be outside

It's normal, they love it, pity the ones who don't have the option

It was my ex batts that showed the young LS chicks what to do.  I have a 25 foot tall cupressus with a huge hole in the roots.  I think I'll try to fill it in this summer.  It's fascinating watching them having a  dust bath.  Sometimes the blackbirds and sparrows come down after they've gone to do the same.
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age
