Stupidly hot here in Texas again. So far the birds seem to be doing well other than the few that have developed a bubbly coughing fit. We'll start putting ice in the waterer this week to help cool them off.

keeping up hydration is essential for sure....  Is it humid in your part of Texas?

We're starting a treatment of VetRx and Tylan this week to stop the bubbly business and are doing a complete coop sweep out, cleanse and disinfect to top it off this weekend.

good protocol....   feed bowls can be rinsed with bleach water and set out in the sun ....  added UV is an excellent disenfectant.
