    heat wave this week

    I have the same problem heat wave in western australia!!! I've resorted to putting my silkies and quail in my air/con garage to keep them safe. My chooks are still in the chook run and I've been hosing water into their areas which are quite large. Hate the heat worry of bush fires too.
