    I hope the eggs under the broody in the coop haven't boiled. They were due today. [​IMG]

  3. Hi Dar'! That's hotter than hot!
    I'd be more concerned for the broody hen than the eggs.
    We had a heatwave a few summers back and hit 110 here. I (being the curious person I am) put a probe under a broody hen to check temps. Never got a reading over 100 under a hen, but the hens were *heat-stressed and panting on the nests.
    Good luck and hope all your eggs hatch!

    I was here on the 26th of June, 1990 when it hit 122. Thank the Lord we haven't had any more of that.

    We hit 100 without the heat index today. I'm not home to keep an eye on my birds this week, but according to mom they were hassling bad. We have fans going, ice bags, open sided coop, and of course shade, but it just doesn't seem to be enough. Poor things, I can't imagine 122!
