    Well since we've moved our chicks to the outdoor coop they've lacked a decent bathing station. Our yard has a lot of hard clay soil which is hard to work with a shovel let alone with chicken talons, so I bought several bags of topsoil and made a chicken bath area. They didn't know what to do with it on the first day but a few days ago I came home and found some chicken sized divits in the soil. Here's a video several days after that . They still haven't fully broke the soil up but they seem to really like it.

    Lol I just realized I put this in the wrong forum [​IMG]. I was reading the what breed or gender forums and must have failed to transition to the intended forum [​IMG]
