I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

It's mainly dirt with a little bit of sand particles. Sand, gravel, and other small pebbles can improve their digestion as well. That's why you'll see birds eating rocks. Helps with leafy substances. Also rocks can help file down their toe nails.

You can make a dust box for them. It can be a wooden box or a kitty litter tray. Then fill it with material to dust with. Here's a link to give you an idea. You can do a google search for more ideas.
