Preening 101

You may wonder how chickens keep their feathers so clean. There is actually a lot of work involved. In their free time(they have a lot!) most of the time chickens preen. All birds do it to keep bugs out of their feathers, and keeping them smooth and soft.

They just run their beaks over each feather, therefore cleaning it.
