    Beautiful today, in the 70's that's Fahrenheit and sunny, a light breeze from the south. heading out of summer into fall. cold weather is headed our way soon. I suppose you are headed to spring.

    Here it can be the heat in the summer. sometimes over 38C not bad unless it is also humid.

    We have 2 fans in the hen house at the top ends. one on all the time, one on a thermostat. foam insulation under the ceiling which helps a lot. we also have shade cloth over the run, and when they are out they hang out at the edge of the woods to stay cooler.
