I thought I was so good giving my chickens a new place to dust bathe. I bought a galvanized pan at Tractor Supply and sand from Home Depot and dug a spot in their yard to sink it into. Then I stood back to watch. Those silly chickens are dust bathing in the fresh dirt right next to the pan! I haven't seen one in the pan except to use it as a little box! I guess, I should have just dug up the dirt. "Thanks chicken mama, we love the dirt, but what is the pan here for?"
