I have an 8'x8' run and then a 1600sqft fenced in area for my chickens to forage. I have 8 chickens right now. A lot of the area stays shaded but it's still hot. I've been just leaving the run door open so they can get water and feed whenever they want but I don't see them going in there much at all during the day. Some of my chickens are panting. Should I put another waterer out in their forage area? I also set out a pan with ice, water and frozen berries. They're not going nuts over it....in the run I have a hen hydrater thing from Tractor Supply. Should I put ice in it every day to keep the water cool?
