At Treats for Chickens, our chicken treats and herbal nesting box products are pretty eggcellent (see what I did there😉) and so are our poultry problem solvers.
Re-introducing our newly Re-formulated Pardon My Dust™ – a Treats for Chickens online eggsclusive.
Here’s what you need to know: your chickens need to stretch their wings, preen and flap, wiggle, dust and bathe – all in the dirt. Chickens love dirt! Right? Yes, yes they do which makes Pardon My Dust especially important in weather conditions when access to dry areas for bathing are at a limited supply btw. Read on.
Bugs such as lice, mites, and other offensive nasty critters prefer dry/flaky, bumpy, red, and irritated chicken skin, as well as feather dander. They find it most habitable to scurry about and cause our flocks to go mad – to be spiteful, irritated, and to get all bunched up and stop laying eggs. And, in the worst of cases, our girls (roosters too) will cease eating and drinking. And, we don't want that.
At Treats for Chickens, we make this fun and vital bird ritual an eggceptional experience for your pet chicken. Pardon My Dust is your flocks’ solution for pest control and a healthier herbal dusting experience.

Tips For Use
So, here’s what you'll get: This 4-pound resealable bag comes with 20 applications. That's 20 opportunities for your feathered friends to hunker down in the dirt, wallow in it just a tad, stretch their wings and flap, wiggle and fling Pardon My Dust all-over-the-place - with no excuses or apology needed. Here at Treats for Chickens, we encourage this kind of behavior!
Here's what you need to do: Add 1 or 2 scoops (Dawn uses a large wooden spoon btw) to an already determined chicken dusting area (aka "holes") and your flock will take care of the rest. One or two scoops of Pardon My Dust per 3-4 hens + plain old dirt will do just great. We are all about health and happiness and these natural ingredients are safe for handling, so reach in and scoop out as needed.
Or if dusting shenanigans need to be a little more controlled, add Pardon My Dust to a container (kiddie pool, shallow bin, deep tray, wine barrel, etc) that is filled a bit with dirt, sand, shavings, or a material of your choice. Add several scoops of Pardon My Dust and your flock will do the rest.
Is Pardon My Dust chick age appropriate? Sure is. Start healthy hygiene habits at a young age, even without a mom hen on standby. Sprinkle a scoop on top of dirt and into a small tray, chicks will dive in to start dusting: cleaning and preening. It’s adorable to watch so keep your camera handy.
General Pro-Chick Tip: be sure that baby chicks under two weeks of age always have access to grit so they can properly digest their food.
