the downside is chickens will poop in the water. and you have to clean it out..
so scratched that idea and just use put the bricks on bare earth ground instead-- it's easier to just scrape the manure of the bricks instead of having to take them out of the pan one by one and clean wash them off then put them back..
provide shade and plenty of water should be sufficient
your chickens will get used to the heat soon or later
