What's the deal with dust bathing in winter?

Recommended Posts

Following the recent monsoon-like weather we've had, which has turned our garden into a swamp - it made me wonder how long until the soil dried out and the girls could once again enjoy their regular dust bathing. Then I started to wonder what they do in winter? Is it just the natural order of things that lice etc are less prevalent in winter and therefore chickens don't need to dust bathe or should I put something in the run, under cover for them? And if so what?


Hope this isn't a really dumb question... :oops:
