Turkish baths

Wild turkeys make these dust baths bowls

Anyone who reads this blog knows by now that I live with a bunch of turkeys ― wild turkeys, that is. These peaceful and intelligent birds enjoy a simple life, feeding mainly on insects and raising their young in family groups with two or more hens keeping watch over the poults. 

Wild turkeys just love taking dust baths. The poults learn to dust their downy feathers only days after hatching.
