Making a dirt bath

We made a dirt bath for the hens. It took us around 3 minutes so it is really quick. We used 3 ingredients. We used these ingredients in this order, then mixed:

1. Get an empty tub. You can use any tub/box as long as it isn’t too deep for the chickens to get in to.

2. Add builders sand

3. Add soil (with no chemicals added)


4. Add wood ash (just from wood)


5. Mix together


6. Then we put the dirt bath in the run.


7. Wait for the chickens to have a wash.
