My little 7 week olds are still coop'd up and haven't been introduced to their outdoor run yet, this weekend I am going to let them outside. They seem to be trying to bathe in the shavings that I laid them inside the coop. I watch them flop around in them and sort of toss their winds around throwing the shavings all over themselves. Is this a sign that they are needing an alternative to bathe in? I remember seeing a post about using ash from the fireplace but, is that whats going on? Looking for a bath? If so what is best to provide them and should I wait until this weekend to build them a bath in the dirt outside or is there a good way for something in the coop?
