    During the day I have my 6 week olds in their temporary run and I give them a little cardboard box with sand and wood ashes for dust bathing. It is a BIG hit and everybody wants to be first.......... as you can see. At some point there where 9 in there at the same time and other ones lining up to get their turn. They just crack me up, just had to share [​IMG]

    Too cute. I have a round rubber pan with sand in my juvenile pen and they all cram in there until there is no room for flapping. Kind of defeats the purpose. But they are young still!
