Big Red the Rooster

We lost one of our Les Poulets today to the heat we are having.We have been checking the water for the chickens often through out the day and after finding Big Red gone we added another water bucket.Chance even hosed down their yard and the outside of the coop in hopes it would help keep the rest of the girls cooler.
Here in Oregon we don't normally get triple digit heat so it makes us all a bit wimpy .We have 2 or more days of this heat and I am ready for it to be GONE. It's kind of funny to read other blogs on the other side of the world where they are piling on more blankets and I am here thinking why do we have blankets on the bed right now.

  1. I'm sorry to hear about the heat loss of one of the poulets, even if they are destined for dinners, overheating is a sad way to go. SO far Henny Penny is doing okay
