Laying or hot

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My hens have started laying on the ground today. Some in "broody" position some on their sides. It's the beginning of a heat wave. Are they just got or are some getting ready to lay? They're about 17/18 werks

Probably just nestling down into the cool dirt.

Welcome to BYC!

It's best to start a new thread and give all the details about age, feed, laying history.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
