I planned early this year for the hot summers and built a range shelter for my flock. It is a simple shelter with a roof and south wall to block the sun. I put 2 x 6,s around the bottom to hold shavings and sand for dust baths. Added an extra water source so that my flock has plenty of fresh water in the shade. It is also great for them to use as a rain shelter to dodge thunderstorms that pop up if they don't want to go back in the coop. They seem to use it now for light rains as a hang our area. I wanted to share the idea for others members that may free range.
