Hot Weather Solutions

    For those struggling with triple digit temperatures in the South, I have a solution your chickens will appreciate. It has been in the 110 degree range for over a month and taking a toll on our little flock. The white game chickens are especially suseptible to heat stroke. BUY MISTERS FOR YOUR CHICKENS AND KEEP THEM IN THE SHADE. THEY LOVE IT. NO MORE PANTING DAY AND NIGHT ANYMORE. NO MORE SUPRISE DEAD CHICKENS IN THE MORNING. We lost two this summer. We don't even like to lose one. We feel confident now that we won't lose anymore to the heat.
