    I live where summers are dry with triple digit temps. I have a flock of what I think are red sex linked hens. They fair actually really well by staying in shade and drinking a lot. I want to add to my flock but am wondering if there are some breeds better suited for heat and some that can't cope?

    Go to breeds at the top of the page in the brown bar, then select for hot climate.
