How much sand do I need for a dust bath?

Can I mix other items into the sand?

Should my dust bath be in a covered area.

Yes the area under a raised house is perfect for a dust bath or in a covered run

More Info

Dust baths are absolutely essential for helping keep mites and pests at bay and they also allow your hen to express her natural behaviour, making them happier and healthier all round.

Sand is the main base ingredient for any good dust bath, our kiln dried sand is particularly good as it’s very fine and having been kiln dried has no residual moisture.

The tiny grains of sand along with a good DE powder will kill lice and mites by abrasion, the grains are so small they are harmless to the chickens but to mites and lice they are like tiny shards of glass.

“Pipinchick couldn’t have been more helpful”

Pipinchick couldn't have been more helpful, delivering our two friendly hens and some supplies we couldn't get hold of elsewhere. The birds have kept us entertained - and supplied with eggs - all summer long. If you are lucky enough to have a small garden I'd recommend a few chickens for everyone.
