Hi. I'm new at hen keeping but wondered if you can help. One of my chickens (approx 3/4 months old) keeps digging a hole and laying in it. She sits down then rolls onto her side almost. Is this normal? My other one doesn't do it. Could there be a reason for it or is she sickening for something?

She's getting a dust bath. It helps their skin rids them of parasites and yes cools them down. Congrats on new chicken keeping
