    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Oh they do love their dust baths!! That is a great article that Yorkshire Coop has left for you. And yes, if you have tender greens around, they are a magnet for chickens. Keeping them out of the garden is a full time job!

    Great to have you aboard! Make yourself at home here and welcome to our flock! :)
