My flock of diva chickens LOVES this product!

Adding a sprinkle of preen queen to my dust bath area for my chickens made everything smell so good! But more importantly helps keep things drier and also assist in keeping my flock’s feathers nice and shiny. The latest in a long line of excellent products from Strong Animals which uses herbal essential oils for their benefits and scents, preen queen has become a permanent addition to my chickens' dust bathing environment. I absolutely love it!

dust baths help prevent lice and mites

As a backyard chicken owner, it’s crucial to encourage dust bathing as part of your coop management and hygiene plan. Dust bathing is the act of rolling around in dirt and dust to ward the body of harmful bugs. While it seems ironic, chickens keep themselves clean by rolling in the dirt and dust bathing.


All chickens have preening glands that produce oil, and as it builds up it attracts bugs like mites and lice. To absorb this oil and make their bodies less habitable to bugs, chickens must frequently dust bathe.


It’s important that chickens have access to a dust bath. Your chickens love to make their own dust bath in the run when the weather is nice, but in the winter it’s important to provide an indoor dust bath location in your coop. This will help protect your flock from bug infestations that can cause poor bird health.
