    Anything new always seems to get attention! At least its dirt/sand and not something bad for them.

    Those hens are beautiful, but I would love to have a picture of that rooster on my wall. He is striking even with dirt on his face [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Well, usually when I put something in their pen area it is edible, so I guess they figure sand was just another treat. They have lots of calcium available free choice but oddly they rarely eat it. I guess sand just tastes better! Ask any toddler!

    And for the Stan Fans:
