Hi Everyone! I'm curious what temp range can chickens handle. It is about 95 degrees out right now....and even at say 85 the girls are hot and panting. They have access to water in the coop, and the coop provides the most shade for them. We are not really set up for shade yet. In the coop we have a box fan on high that runs all night and they seem fine with it. We have decent ventilation but was wondering if something like shade cloth would help out any or would it be a waste of time. The main part of the coop is west facing so it takes a beating with the sun, but there isn't any light to coming through on that side. We thought of trying to cut more ventilation into the coop, but we also have to be able to keep the coop at a decent temp in the winters, which can get pretty cold here.....like into the teens or single digits so we are pretty hesitant to cut anymore holes into the coop. I feel bad for the poor girls....they are just so hot hot hot! They spend most of their time indoors during the heat of the day and come out just as it is starting to cool down outside which is pretty late at night and then they go back in for the night. So is this heat ok for them?
