    My birds are panting today- we're currently at 101 degrees and it is HOT outside for this time of year- might be a record! I can't wait for it to cool down again, and I'm sure my birds can't wait either!

    it's always time for sunglasses out here. [​IMG] But I don't miss the snow one little eensy teensy tiny bit! 101 in the middle of October is a bit much though...

    I just wish I could have some fun at home today instead of being in the office...but thank GOODNESS for BYC!

    nah- 101 isn't rubbing it in...it's sweating! now if the weather would just get back to those 80 degree temps we had last week that would be rubbing it in!

    I'm actually quite serious!!! After the summers we have out here fall feels so nice and then BAM right back to 100 degree weather is not cool!

    I'll send some hot weather your way if you send me come cool weather [​IMG] we can trade about 20 degrees and both be happy as clams!

    Quote:[​IMG] what can I say? most of the country complains about cold...we complain about heat!

    now, once we figure out how to control the weather so we all live like we're in san diego- we can be rich and just hang out with our birds all day long [​IMG]

    I'M WITH YOU HERE KRISTIN--- BUT AT LEAST Y'ALL GET THE DRY HEAT--- WE USUALLY HAVE SAUNA CONDITIONS HERE---YUCK!

    AS FAR AS TREATS? I DO GIVE MINE VIT C IN THE WATER DURING HOT TIMES--- IT HELPS EGG PRODUCTION AND ALLOWS THE BIRDS TO BETTER COMPENSATE FOR THE HEAT STRESS--- DO A SEARCH ON HERE FOR HEAT STRESS, NIKI POSTED BACK IN EARLY SUMMER--- VIT C AND VIT E HELP.
