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