Dust Bathing

If you see your chickens on the ground kicking up dust and all twisted up, don’t be scared and freaked out like I was. They are only dust bathing. Dust bathing helps get chickens clean, I know you are probably thinking ‘What? Chickens bathing in dust? Doesn’t that get them even more dirty?’ No it doesn’t, it cleans them. My chicken, Salt, looked like a snowball afterwords, so it gets them pretty clean. Also they seem to have a ball doing it too!
