How Can Wood Ash Help Chickens?

Chickens love to find a dry dusty area to roll around in. This is healthy for them. Birds are prone to parasites like lice and mites. Providing a nice place for them to dust bathe gives them a natural way to control the parasites. Continue reading How Can Wood Ash Help Chickens?
