    I needed the containers from baby powder to use without the baby powder so I have a large bowl full of baby powder.

    Rather than throw it away, I'm wondering if the chickens would like it for their bath. Would it hurt them? They love to sun bathe in fine dirt so it seems powder would be great..... I just don't want to hurt them. Any advice would be appreciated.

    I don't believe breathing in baby powder would be good for their respiratory system....
