    Eggs should be okay. Chickens body's run about 106 degrees F. But... I'd worry about how hot it's getting in your coop. Chickens can die from heat stroke pretty easy.

    well it was 103º outside today anyway. i fed them some cold watermelon and refilled their jug with lots of ice and cold water when i got home from work. the run and coop are both covered and in the shade.
