    I love that you put the dirt in their brooder like that. I hadn't even thought about that. I've got some day olds arriving on Thursday and next week they will get a little "field trip" of the great outdoors right in their brooder!

    That's really cute!

    By the way... what's the purpose of chickens taking dust/dirt baths? (It doesn't look like they're getting too clean! [​IMG] )
