    Ok so we know that the color black usually absorbs more heat then other colors,
    but does this apply to chcikens too? Does Black colored birds do well in the heat?
    I wanna get a flock of Black Ameraucanas but during the summer we get temperatures of 115+ will this affect them more cuz of their color or it doesn't matter?
