Using wood ashes for your chickens saves you money. We store them (fireplace ash only, not BBQ coals, etc) and when needed, mix 2 1/2 parts ash to 1 part sand for the chickens to do their dust bathing. And guess what? It keeps mites away. It's been over a year since the last time I bought the bottled mite spray. That and painting the coop with hydrated lime has worked great so far!
Step 1: You will need some bleach, a pencil with eraser, a pencil sharpener, toothpicks, and some fabric or linens. We happened to have some great navy napkins from our last shoot handy but any fabric or dark colored linen will do.Step 2: Add the bleach to a small jar.Step 3: Use the pencil sharpener to make the tip of the pencil eraser smaller. Step 4: Dip the eraser into the bleach.Step 5
