Today is more than hot, it's miserable. So here is what I have done for my girls. Please feel free to offer advice. My 5 chickens are 11 weeks old and 8 weeks old. They have there red coop with plenty of veneration plus there 20x 20 run fenced in. I put a frozen water bottle in there water to keep water cold, watered down a few patches of dirt and put a fan outside. Am I being overly concerned? There beaks are open like there over heating. Maybe that's part of there cooling process but is a new behavior for me to see. I don't have sand in coop but there is some loose dirt. I took them some watermelon and they loved it. I'm ipen to suggestions if I'm missing anything.
