You can offer them one now if you want. Not sure if they'll know what to do with it yet though, I can't recall how old mine were when I started to notice them dust bathing.

Dirty chicks aren't nearly as cute, but it's inevitable. Keep the brooder clean and it will help to keep the birds clean as well. A baby wipe or wet rag won't hurt them if you want to clean them up a bit.

The cream legbar chicks I have were sawdust bathing after around a week in their brooder box. I've not had others do this before, but guessing they may have used a sand box if it were there for them.
