At what age do I offer the mixed dust bath to the chicks?
I'd think anytime after they have their feet under them well - maybe around 1 week?
They will dust bathe in the shavings pretty young - like 2 weeks or so, so I'd figure that'd be a good time to introduce a dust bath - when you see them trying to bathe in the shavings.
I concur: as soon as you notice that they're fluffing in the shaving
My three figured it out independently over the course of about 3 days and started goign at it hard core around 3 1/2 weeks of age.
