226-2020 – Two Chickens Dust Bathing in the Garden

Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about two chickens dust bathing in the garden.

Two chickens dust bathing in the garden

chicken dust bath helps to remove excess oil, as well as external parasites like lice and mites. My mother-in-law has spread a handful of wood ash to create a dust bathing area for them to do the work themselves. When done bathing, the chicken will shake off any excess ash and dead parasites.

As usual, I hope you’ve learned something.
