Dust Baths On A Hot Morning

This morning I came upon a turkey hen preparing her dust bath.  She was scratching and pecking at the ground getting the earth loose and creating a fine dust.  It quickly suited her and she settled in for a satisfying wallow...





Before too long she was joined by a second hen...


Followed by a number of poults each mimicking the adults...




After everyone had a turn they drifted into the shade nearby...



Stop back soon.
