Hi! Honestly, i dont use anything! Our girls have access to lots of good dry dirt for dust baths. If you dont have a flea issue in your area, i think for the most part the chickens take care of it themselves. But i do believe there are folks who use certain herbs and topical treatments for prevention. I also think spple cider vinegar in water is supposed to be helpful.
Fyi. We have a great area in their run that ended up having some really ashy dirt after we emptied our fire pit embers on to a lsrge weed to kill it. We did it before we built the coop, knowing the chickens would be in there. Once everything settled, it became very light and perfect for dust bathing. So if your dirt is sandy or rough, ash worked well for us!
of course! Also. I appreciate your stick roost! We did the same thing! We have so many trees, i put about 5 different sticks or branches in our brooder at various levels. It was so neat and SO FREE! Ha!
Whitewash. The old-fashioned kind...
Plus the wood ash is a GREAT thing for them, as well as the ACV in the water...doing both as well myself...
