    I have a big sand box that my boys don't play in any more. Should I put it in the run for the girls to use as a dust bath ?

    I would have dirt and maybe a little fireplace ash in it rather than a ton of sand, but they will still dustbathe in the sand, just not immediately, because it will take some time to get used to it. Best of luck!

    Thanks. I'll mix some dirt sand and some ashes in the box.
