    What do chickens do to dust themselves in the winter? I feel so bad for them. I know they want some dirt or something to clean themselves, what to do????

    Mine seem to be able to scratch up a bit of frozen ground, but not like summer time. Some people keep some sand/peat moss/ wood ash/ DE in a tub or pan. I haven't gotten around to doing that yet. As long as it's dry they would use it.
