    Hi Everyone,
    My gangs dust bath got drenched in the rain this afternoon. My question......Can I dry it out and still use it? I'm assuming the answer is yes. I can make a new one, that's no problem, it's just that this one is only 6 days old and I don't see anything wrong with it except that it got wet, really wet. I have a feeling everyone is going to laugh and say yes you silly goose! Maybe not?

    Dust bath? Mine free range and seem okay after dustbathing in muddy, soaked earth so I'd say you'll be okay [​IMG]

    Chickens don't mind a dust bath that has gotten wet and dried out. They'll dust in just about anything that they want to dust in anyway, they aren't picky!
