Hi I have had 3 hens for about 6 weeks and I have only seen them have 1 dust bath. I was just wondering if there was anything I could do to encourage them to have dust baths more often :)

Young chickens will usually on their own take care of their hygiene. But you can make the place easier to get to and add a little more dust every once in awhile to upkeep it. And I know chickens also enjoy sun basking. You can encourage this by creating a sunny spot on a slanted landscape (that's what ours enjoy anyways).
