    Is it okay that my ladies are dust bathing in old BBQ ashes? Looks like they are doing burnouts! [​IMG]

    Ashes are great for them. Just make sure there are not any hot coals left.

    I know where I am going to put my ashes from the BBQ tonight. All this time I used to bag it & throw it away in the trash. Love having chickens! Thanks ya'll. K
