Hi! I'm brand new to the site. Love to read up on the experiences of others. I have 5 hens. Live in Northern KY. Their house is one of those purchased off the ground types with a metal roof and a wooden nesting area up top. The bottom portion is open with a wire protection around it. It sits inside their run which is chain link 6' high and covered with wire on top. They have plenty of room in the warm weather (about 30' x 10' area) under large pine trees. My question is whether it is ok to put a dust bath container in the lower portion (on the ground) of their hen house when the ground is snowy or wet? I would do that to keep snow or rain out of the container in the winter. Just want to make sure it's not too close to their nesting area. I read something about a concern with their breathing. I use wood ash from the fireplace and have just purchased DE to add to the bath. Pic below.
