My chicks are panting and spreading their wings is there anything besides some shade I can do for them it's hot and humid out right now
I do ice in the water, cold apples, they adore watermelon... frozen corn for some. I have no idea how old these guys are. Do they have shade? I'm gathering they are outside eating other foods...

When it gets really hot outside I get my kid pool out and I place my hens in it. At first they tried to fly out but then they realized that the water felt good they all stayed there, and so I had a backyard full of hens sitting in a shallow pond. LOL If you don't have a kid pool just get a bucket and dip them in cooling them off.
