Chickens love to dust bathe. They find a dry spot in the dirt and roll, fluff, and flap to their hearts content. Then, if it’s a sunny spot they just sorta fall asleep. In fact, if you’re new to chickens and you see them all sprawled in one spot looking half dead, you might just think the worst happened! Not to worry, it’s just a spa treatment chicken-style.

I’ll let you in on the 2 secret ingredients and tell you exactly why you (not them) should control where they dust bathe!
