    I'd love to have a pic of them lol. But the run is mud overlaid with hay right now. And it has been raining off and on so I can't get a fire built to get wood ash. I'd use the grill but too much grease and sauce in it. I'd add a bag of play sand I have to a bin, but it is pink lol

    Pink playsand, that must be something new. I think some folks toss in spagnum peat moss too.

    They make it for kids sand boxes. Blue, pink, green. I got it for my daughters wedding last fall to put in the bottom of the firepits. Have a bag left over, just sitting in my truck lol.

    Cleo had an EPIC time dust bathing on the longest day of the year yesterday. She is by herself here because all the other hens answered the call for mealworms. fullsizeoutput_778c.jpeg fullsizeoutput_776b.jpeg
