    I'm outside of New Orleans our heat is high in humidty. They did fine. They did pant in aug. I keep a kiddy pool so they can get their feet wet. They need shade too. Pam

    My Bielefelders easily sustained short bursts of 100 degree days in the hottest part of summer. Granted, I don't have long periods of the scorching that Arizona does. But a couple days in a row of 100 didn't phase my Bielefelder flock. So far, winter hasn't phased them either but January is the coldest month here so it remains to be seen.

    The young ones are 1 week to 1 month old but I do have an extra cockerel that was born in early August.

    Hi DesertChic! They handled the heat as well as my smallest chickens (cream legbars). Sure their beaks would be open and them panting, the rest of chickens were too. Make sure they have plenty of fresh water and shade.
