I have some 2 1/2 week old silkies. I grind their medicated chick feed as its easier for them to eat it plus they dont waste near as much but have noticed that two nights in a row now their covered from head to toe in it and tonight saw them trying to bathe in it. I put some dirt in a pan and put it in there hoping they would bathe in that but they started to eat it so took it out as I wasnt sure at their young age it would be okay for them to eat it. Then I put some sand in there and they started to peck and eat that too. Some have said their too young to be eating dirt and sand so am not sure what to do. What can I put in there that theyll bathe in or what do you suggest to do if their wanting to bathe maybe take a warm damp paper towel and bathe them myself?
