I know they love their dust baths but this is the absolute worst place for it! My husband's gonna kill me!! Our basement has never leaked before but It'll probably start now. Guess I need to make them a little area in their coop to take their dust baths. I've seen some good ideas on here. Because when I let them out to free range the first thing they do is head for my flower beds or the house foundation. Bad girls!! But funny picture. Also have a picture of one of my girls in her finest tie dye chicken saddle/vest.

Why do they always pick the worst area for you as the best place for them???


Love the tie-dye saddle!

Mine do the same thing when they get out.

It is because this spot next to the foundation is very dry because of the eaves of the house. The drier the more they like it.

Just file up the hole with the stuff they kicked out, DH will be none the wiser.

LOL! If that caused your basement to leak I'd be completely amazed. Houses can and do deal with much worse, imagine what 3 kids could do! a chicken scratching out a dust bath is nothing!
Go chill wit yer peeps already!!
