    Hi
    I know that chickens love to have dust baths with wood ash.

    My question is , would it be ok for my hens to have a dust bath in peat ash

    Thank you
     

  2. Where are you that you access to Peat Ash? I would say that most chickens know what to dust bath in and what to not. Put it out... if they use it, its probably ok.
