The Art of Chicken Dust Bathing: Why It's Essential for Happy Hens


Ever wonder why chickens love to dust bathe? It's more than just a quirky behavior—it's essential for their well-being. Let's explore the art of chicken dust bathing and why you should encourage it.


Natural Pest Control:

Dust bathing is a chicken's way of keeping pests at bay. As they roll around in the dust, it helps remove excess oil from their feathers and skin, making it an effective method to deter mites, lice, and other unwanted guests.


Healthy Feathers, Healthy Chickens:

Dust bathing plays a crucial role in maintaining the health of your chickens' feathers. It helps remove dirt, parasites, and old skin, keeping their plumage clean and free from irritants. A clean coat also enhances their insulation and overall well-being.


Create a Dust Bathing Station:

Encourage this natural behavior by creating a dedicated dust bathing area. Use a shallow container filled with sand or fine dust, and add diatomaceous earth for extra pest-fighting power. Place it in a dry and accessible spot within the coop or run.
