The girls enjoying their first watermelon half at 7 weeks. Clockwise starting with white Delaware: Donut, Ponyo, Polly and Elliot

I spiked their water with some Pedialyte and that seemed to perk them up. It's a hot summer!

Any other tips for keeping my poor girls from frying in this heat?

Wetting their dust bathing areas, providing a shallow trough of water for them to stand in, putting ice in the water, fans in the coop. I'm sure you will find more ideas if you type "how to keep chickens cool" in the search box.
