They sure are quirky ! I hang cabbage for mine and one time the store was out of green cabbage so I bought red. They were so afraid of it that I had to take it down - they refused to go into their coop !!
Dust bath fear. - Page 2
Hubby and I put 50 pounds of sand in the run in the driest, most covered spot for a dust bath for the little dears. They all came over, a couple tasted it and are now ignoring it. I'm hoping that they figure out what to do with it. We got the sand because I saw a couple scratching and laying down. Of course it was in a spot that wasn't dry and loose.
