    I currently have a young female turkey and she stands in a container of water that goes up to her knees and splashes in it. I was wondering if this type of behaviour is a sign of distress or if she is just playing. I am also unsure if she is washing her legs and feet as lately we have been experiencing floods and some of the enclosure is a bit muddy.

    Thanks

    I think she just likes the water. Especially since it sounds like she is willingly going into the water. If she is eating fine and appears healthy, then I think there is no reason to be concerned.
