Abstract Stofbaden en scharrelen zijn typische behoeften van de kip. Dat betekent dat het dier een grote motivatie heeft vanuit zijn evolutionaire verleden voor dit gedrag. Logisch, want stofbaden is de manier van zelfverzorging waarmee het dier zich ontdoet van parasieten en haar verenkleed in goede conditie houdt.
