    Chickens can't swim. We have a couple kidde pools for our 2 ducks and 2 geese, and I've never seen a chicken IN one, but they drink from them sometimes. You could put out a misty sprinkler in the shade and see if they hang out near it. Keep buckets of cold water in the shade for them. That helps cool them down.
