Dusting box for hens

My girls love to dust themselves, lolling around in the dirt and fluffing it up everywhere. I had a galvanized planter filled with some dry dirt, and GH&E have taken it over. Eloise in particular loves to roll around and get dirt everywhere. Soon, I’ll be adding a couple of tablespoons of Diatomaceous Earth (food grade only!) to their dusting box. Adding DE to their dusting box is a painless way to get them to dust themselves with it. DE is an all-natural pest controller (actually it’s made from fossilized diatoms – a microfossil – pretty dang cool).
