The temperature displayed in downtown Sonora hit 105 degrees today, but Mymotherlode.com
is saying it's 100 degrees right now. I just moved my favorite three girls outside a few days ago. Because we're moving, I put the coop frame and walls on hold so the coop wont take up too much room in the van. The girls have a large dog "igloo" and a dog fence around them, a piece of plywood on top for additional shade, food, a bowl of water for bathing, and cold water for drinking. The pen is in green grass and dandelions about a foot tall. Anything else I can do/should do for them besides throw them in the creek for a swim along with the dogs LOL?
that sounds good, unless you bring them in the house for A/C! I sprayed their runs with water as well. Our is not working today, btw...hopefully tomorrow. House temp is now 91.
You must be dying of heat!! I kept the house down to the upper 70's, and I still took a cool shower about 6:30pm. I have a brooder inside with 3-4 week old chicks I kept the light on for. I like your mister idea, I don't think the girls ever bathed in the water I gave them. Poor little things were panting! Last night I put a couple of 2 liter bottles of water in the freezer, I'll put them in the igloo with them when it really heats up again today
