Finally we have some heat here and just like the rest of the country we are all searching for ways to keep cool. I want to remind everyone to keep a close eye on their hens while it is so hot.
Heat Wave Chicken Check list:
1. Chickens are thirsty birds always, during hot spells check their water more often.Some folks add ice to their hens water when the temps are high.
2. Consider hosing down the coop and run area to help things cool down.
3. If your Chickens have little or no shade think about creating some.
Pretty simple when you look at it,all the things you think of for yourself when it is hot. Stay cool everyone.
