It is 101 right now in Vacaville CA and is supposed to get up to 107. I was watching my girls in the back yard. They have shade and were laying under the coop panting away in the heat. I felt so sorry for them that I put them in the dog crate and brought them in the house so they could be in the air conditioning. They have a towel to lay on and their food and water inside the kennel. My husband loves the chickens but says I am being ridiculous. He says they are farm animals and should be used to being outside in a variety of temperatures. Am I being too soft? Should I put them back outside or keep them in until it cools down? Any thoughts on this are appreciated! Thanks!!
