If the chickens are out when the weather turns we just let them decide. They can hang out under the coop or on the porch of the coop (4x12 covered porch on front) and there are a number of porches on the house and trailers around they can get under if it bothers them. They seem to enjoy being out in it until it gets really, really heavy. They do seem to really enjoy the moderate showers. I don't blame them! Would have loved some rain today to cool things off.
Was hot and bright here also. I had to mow at our family property in Elk Co and then came home to do it here too. Was miserable hot. The dogs went with me to camp and they spent the 2+ hrs I was mowing lounging under a porch watching....LOL... they did come out to offer moral support when I stopped to refuel or get a drink though. I need to teach them how to run a weed eater! Temp of 100 degrees on a bank display on the way home, but my vehicle thermometer said it was only 90.
