Months of rain make having dry places for the chickens a must. Rolling around in the dust is a favorite pastime of the chickens. Sunshine pouring down on them as they roll around in the dust is just a fantasy this time of year. Come spring with days of warm sunshine, and the chickens will be dancing for joy during their dust baths. On these endless cloudless days, a dry spot will do use fine.
