I had heard of dust baths by chickens but never really knew the process or reality until yesterday!

They look a bit dead (as do all my herbs!!!) but they’re not.  They’re like dogs rolling around in bird poo – never thought that chickens would roll around like that getting totally covered in dry dirt! Then after about an hour of that, they strutt around fluffing themselves to shake the dirt out! Quite bizarre and a very good reason to get chicks and to give them lots of free range space!  We just need to decide if a kitchen-handy herb garden is more important??!!!
