    My little biddies are really growing up. They've been going outside to free-range each day for about thirty minutes or so. Well today, they've begun to enjoy the dirt a little more. They dustbathe inside regularly via an upside down frisbee in their brooder, but now they've started doing it outside. They are coming along quite nicely and I'm not wanting to get rid of my roo...

    Haha, yeah! I first introduced them to dirt in their brooder with an upside down frisbee. They hadn't bathed outdoors before, although they would in their brooder. Today, they graduated! [​IMG]
