chickens and water

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Does anyones chickens use a kiddie pool to splash around in?  The reason I ask is it's been 90+ as it has for many of us, and we happen to be getting a pop-up downpour  and my chickens seem to be loving the rain! 

It's like the chickens are.....organized!

Ive never seen mine go near any kiddy pool Except to drink...i did have a turkey hen that used to jump in the pool with my call ducks...she loved to splash and play with them!!!

No, I don't have one. I do keep a hose running with cool water that pools up in their wooded area. They walk in the cool pool of water and also drink it too.

I dunk my flock during these hot days. Today is extremely humid with 100 temps. Ugh. The poor flock. I will be gone most the day today since its a holiday. I'll dunk before I leave and when I get home. I free range, so they take refuge under the trees.
