ZIZO #26: Laverne Needs a Bath

We're in a bit of a  drought here in California, and the chicken's aviary has become quite dusty. I've read that chickens give themselves dust baths and generally don't need to be bathed. But, seriously, Laverne, you're looking really scruffy. And Clara is thinking about giving you a bath. Clara's friend, Ashley, who shows chickens and runs the egg program at the high school has volunteered to come over and help. I'm planning to stay back. . . and take lots of pictures! Linking up with Helena's zoom in zoom out meme.

Honestly, is there a better name for a chicken than Laverne? I think not.

Not good about the drought. Hope you get rain soon.
Laverne does look a bit dusty so hopefully she gets that bath. Do shot after photos.

I can't wait to see photographic evidence, I had no idea you had to/ could bath a chicken! it sounds hysterical to me. What a great ZIZO.
