Has anyone created an area within their coop for the hens to take a dust bath? Mine will fluff up inside the coop in the shavings but outside the coop is dirt floor and they scratch their own little bust bowl out when it's dry. What I am going to try, in one pen, is using an old dog house for a dusting room. I put it on the floor of the outside pen to give them more places to run in out of the rain, for added shade, just there for whatever. I thought they might lay there but they didn't. The generally walk in then walk out like, well that was exciting....not. LOL So, it's plastic, it's covered, there is a solid floor that doesn't leak and the lip of the opening is 3 or 4 inches up so it would hold some sand or something for them to take a chicken bath in. I though I might put sand in it, add some wood ashes, some DE and whatever stuff they might light to fluff in. Maybe even some Sevin Dust, anything that might help to keep them clean and happy. What other dusting materials would make this a spa for the girls to clean up in? I don't know why I hadn't thought of this at the beginning. A covered kitty litter pan would work for bantams. It stays dry inside even when it's pouring rain and they can scratch all they want and most of it "should" stay inside with it being covered. What are you all doing or think would be good to add? ETA that I just found another website that recommends using an old tire to fill with the sand and ashes for a dust bath, that would work great in my covered pen.
