Hi...although I registered back in April, this is my first time on the forum -- or any forum for that matter. Raised up 15 chicks for the first time this spring - 3 Australorps (one roo), 3 Speckled Sussex, 3 Silver Laced Wyandottes, 3 Buff Brahmas (one roo), and 3 Partridge Rocks (one roo). I absolutely loved doing it. Great "mental health" therapy. All are doing fine and introduced the first batch to their coop a couple of weeks ago. The second batch is going into a horse stall that we are revamping into a temporary chicken coop until the big coop is finished. I'd welcome some suggestions on ways to keep them cool during the hot days when the heat index goes over 100. Have a tarp over the run, fan running in the coop (that was an experience as far as getting them used to it). I heard of misting with water, but looking for other helpful suggestions.
