Subject: Is dust bathing in his food bad for him?

So Fred my male button quail was plucked mostly bald by his mate, he only has feathers on his wings and legs,she even plucked under his wings. While I plan to attempt to but up a divider in their cage to seperate them for a while. I find that he is now dust bathing in his new food. I bought chicken crumble and due to the size I have to run in thru a coffee grinder a little just to be sure they eat it. Well some of it gets really fine and Fred has taken to jumping in the fresh dish I food and dust bathing. He never really did this with anything before because I had nothing to provide him with. I can't find any info on what is safe to give them to use for that, or I would have set up an area.

Anyways, do you think it will cause any problems/damage for his to do this in his food? Is there any other substance I can provide for him to do this. I think he wants to do it more and I don't want to waste a lot of the food.

Any suggestions?
