Dust bathing is natural and even healthy for your flock.

 

Your chickens NEED to dust bathe – it’s good for ’em physically AND mentally.

 

BUT….all dust baths aren’t created equal.

 

In this week’s podcast, I dish all about why chickens dust bathe, how to create a better dust bath, and how to keep them rolling in dirt even when there’s slush and snow on the ground. 

 

You’ll learn:

  • Why chickens need to dust bathe
  • What exactly they’re doing when they’re tossing dirt
  • Why the size of your dust bath matters
  • Why I use diatomaceous earth instead of wood ash
  • Why you shouldn’t bother including charcoal in your flock’s bath
