    You mean will they take a dust bath at 5 days old? Sure they will. I have set a pan of chick feed in the brooder and they all decided to take a chick feed bath. lol

    Well, that was one of the cutiest things ever!! LOL At first it scared the daylights out of me.. I watch these lil fellows like crazy since we lost one last Saturday. My son in law had to hug me while laughing when he learned I wash chick butts. lol They all pick at me about how I watch them so close but they are in there watching them also cuz they are so darn adorable!! My grandkids and I say they have "major amounts of adorability"!! LOL Thanks for letting me know it's normal.
