I posted in everything else chicken and got no responce so I'm reposting hear. I am building a raised bed in my chicken pen for dusting and need to know what to put in in instead of Georgia red clay. Can I just fill it with 3&1 mix from Home Depot.

Can't they use the clay? I have clay here (not Georgia clay-I'm in Michigan) and when dry it is a fine powder that my chickens love to dust bathe in. I have some sand and some clay and they choose the clay every time. Good luck!

I have clay, too. I mixed sand and wood ashes with the clay. They love it. Some stay in it for an hour and won't move to let the others use it. My Light Brahmas look filthy after but shake a dust cloud and look pretty good.
