I have been wondering when/if my chicks need a dust bath. They will be 4 weeks on Monday and are starting to dig into the pine shavings deep like thet are trying to clean them selves. Should i put in a dust bath area for them? If so what is in a dust bath? Sorry for the newbe question, but i can't seem to find an answer in any books i have. Thanks in advance for the feedback, and any additional advice you may have. 24 chicks, in an 8 x 12 area of my mud room. About to put up roosts, and then nesting boxes. I want to plan out everything i will need for them over the winter in SoEast Missouri. They will go out in the spring, and on nice days this winter.
