“I have
a small backyard flock of 9 hens.  Winter is the only time my
small flock takes group dust baths! They are not the best of friends any
other season but I guess the cold temps bring them to a truce.”

She continued:

they are not having mass dust baths they are waiting for me to open the
back door so they can promptly spill out and hop from grass patch to
grass patch. They are not fans of the snow!

Thanks for sharing these beautiful shots, Jennifer!  My vote doesn’t count, but if it did, you’d be in the lead so far.
