Yesterday was 95 and today is 100 with a feel like temp. of 108. We have only had our chicks out in the coop/run for less than a week so we are new to this. We have two fans running, multiple water sources which I add ice too throughout the day. I have given them frozen veggies and fruits (which they aren’t interested in), put a frozen jug of water in the run for them to lay against (haven’t seen them do it), throw ice cubes on the ground, put their feet in a shallow pan of water (didn’t like it) and spray down areas of the run. They have plenty of shade throughout the day and a dust bath.
Is there anything else I could/should be doing to help them through this heat? My feathered footed Brahma seems to be panting the worst.
