Any ideas on where I can get 100% natural safe dirt for a dust bath for my hens?
I use a mix of sand, top soil and DE. Sometimes I add wood ash if someone doesn’t put anything else in the fire.
You can buy organic dirt(isn't it all organic???) at Walmart. I'm not sure that it's natural...
In your yard?
Is your chicken run not on the ground?
Seriously, let the bird have access to the ground and they'll make their own dust bath.
I get a bag of peat moss every so often and dump it in a small raised garden bed (since they love digging up my actual garden beds). They'll roll around in broken down run litter as well.
