Keep feathers in Tip-Top Shape

Dust bathing is the most natural way for y chickens to reduce oils and parasites as well as keep their feathers clean. Providing a proper dust bathing area that incorporates Fresh Coop Dust Bath (100% Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth) will help to keep feathers in tip-top shape.

Coop Care Essentials

If a dust bath area has not been provided, your chickens may search out a suitable area for themselves.

Old tires, kitty litter pans, sand boxes, shallow bins, kiddie pools, and wooden crates work well for creating a dust bath area.

It is best to keep the dust bath area under a covered area away from rain and snow.

Free Range

Your f chickens will naturally scratch out a depression in the dirt. Or you can create an area suitable for dust bathing. Fill 3-4" deep with a mixture of any of the following:

  • loamy dirt or sand & Fresh Coop Dust Bath (50/50)
  • peat moss & Fresh Coop Dust Bath (50/50)
  • Fresh Coop Dust Bath (100)
