    My week-old chicks "dust bathe" on my lap & chest when I'm wearing my robe or have a towel. We call it "fluffing" and it's absolutely hilarious!

    Yeah, it's cute until they start throwing all the guts of your brooder around the laundry room!!! [​IMG] I had a group of silly girls who were about your ladies' age and their dust baths were so vigorous that I had to scrub the laundry room from top to bottom when I moved them outside! Talk about an incentive to get their pen fixed up!!! They were hilarious!! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] yeah mine will go under my slide (childhood slide) and then they started scratching.
    In a week they had a dirty hole. They now take dust bathes a lot.
