This morning I noticed my rooster Leo had a bum that was more red than normal. Upon closer inspection I noticed a couple mites. I've been giving the chickens a bucket full of wood ashes every week to dust bath in. I put the ashes in a cat litter box and they all dive in, except today it occured to me that I've never seen Leo dust bathing in the wood ashes. So I took matters into my own hands and gave him a dust bath. He didn't like it and I didn't like it one bit.
