    My week olds are loving the sand bath that I put in for them this afternoon. They have been fluffing around in the shavings so I thought a sand bath only be appropriate for them [​IMG]

    And the sand goes flying!

    Heehee that's adorable!

    I personally can't resist tickling them when they do that. They love being floofed while they bathe!

    It's soooo amazing that they're already doing that at merely one week old!

    Pele - I thought so too, but when I heard them thumping around in the shavings I knew what was up! [​IMG]

    Lowry075 - feel free. Those are just 1x2's and the bottom is a piece of OSB. The total dimesions are about 3x6 inches. Not very big at all.
