Ron I feel for ya! Here it went from the 70's to the mid 90"s nearly over night! But with the heat index it is hotter.
My hens runs have shade at both ends and the coop stays pretty cool in the shad under the trees.
Wisher you are very lucky to have a creek and be able to free range your chickens.
We have a creek way back behind our property that most of the farmers up and down 80 use to water their crops and livestock. However our property does not back up to that.
