Where do your chickens like take their dustbathing pleasures? The garden, perhaps? Or maybe under a tree or shrub? I was surprised to find my flock, since the ground is finally snow covered, dustbathing in a new location. Their usual place under my gooseberries is too snowy for a good romp in the soil. But where is a place that is free of snow aaaaand has ample, rich earth to flop around in? Apparently, under the propane tank in the yard is perfect. Nothing grows under it, there is no snow under it, and there is enough of a gap for even a fat marans to get under there and do some good dirt throwing while rolling about! But alas, there isn't enough space for the entire flock to dustbathe at the same time, leading to some conniption fits and vocal displeasure from those who are excluded at any time.
