    Did you take pictures? Why do they call it a Congress? Is this a political thing?

    When I clean the coop and put new wood shavings/chips in, I toss about two large cans of DE on the top. Then when they roll around they dust themselves and spread the DE too. In my covered runs I have a square of two by sixes that I fill with sand and DE.
