Here’s a place for folks who live in the desert to chat. I know it can be difficult to know what to do with the flock when it’s very hot outside, so here we can give and get advice.

I have fifteen pullets, all under a year old. Two are eighteen weeks, the rest are ten months. I live is Southern NM.

HOLY CROW that's hot! 🔥 I shouldn't complain at 80 degrees. :p Are your birds ok, other pets?
The birds are as well as can be expected. My two youngest laid their first eggs today and yesterday! My other pets are rabbits who live outside in a hutch with a swamp cooler. We call it the Bunny Mansion.

Glad you are surviving out there. We've got some clouds now, blocking out that blazing sun!

Congrats on those first eggs! :woot Sounds like the rabbits have a haven out there. :p Stay cool!

Thanks! I am really hoping for some more rain or at least cloud cover, but I don’t think it’s in the forecast.
