Great I'll let you know.Pam
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.
How old are they? I need an older cockerel. I have 2 pullets near pol and no cockerel for them. One girl is getting pink.....
The young ones are 1 week to 1 month old but I do have an extra cockerel that was born in early August.
I know you are a long way away.... do you ever come to Nashville?
Sorry, no. But you may want to check out Trillium Ridge Farm near Knoxville. They raise Bielefelders. That might be a closer drive for you. http://www.trilliumridgefarm.com/poultry.html
No probably not.... just got back from the show in Knoxville..... dang it.
OOH I would love to live there, what is the weather like up there.
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.
