    They will be plenty big enough for the hens especially. If the males still have the full tails you will wreck the feathers. Its getting to be that time of the year that they are dropping them anyways so won't be long before it is gorgeous again. If you live somewhere where its super hot, I'd just scoot those cages up to behind the cab of the truck and forego that tarp. Its really hot in most of the country right now and with no airflow they will be baked.

    yes , let the air flow. just cover the top, to keep them from jumping up, hitting their heads on the wire. Don't cover the whole cage. it will keep the sun off them also.

    Thats one cute girl there.
