Do I need to put something in the coop for them to dust bathe?
I've never put a container for my chicks to dust bathe.
My current batch of chicks dust bathed in the pine shavings till I let them out of the coop at 6 weeks old. They dust bathe in the soil under the coop.

If you want to make a dust bathe container it should be at least 12" deep, 15" wide, 24" long.
Fill about 1/3 full of peat moss or equal parts of sand, wood ash and natural soil. GC
