    In looking through many of the threads about pictures of our chickens, I've noticed something very familiar showing up in the background of LOTS of them....

    So - who has a green turtle pool in your coop?!?!?! And why is it there???

    Mine is a dust bath full of sawdust/shavings/DE.

    That is a great idea! ...now I have to go get one ;)

    Do they actually use it for its intended purpose?

    My girls? YES! It's not unusual for me to see a puff of dust drifting over the run and then see a couple of chicken legs waving around. [​IMG] It was FULL when I put it in there 2 weeks ago and they've flopped and dug about half of it out. I like that I can put the cover on when we're expecting rain and the next day when everything else is muddy, that will still be dry.

    Seriously! I know I've seen them too. The cover makes it most excellent!
