I know there's a list of treats you can feed your chickens because I check it pretty much daily lol but I'm wondering what everyone gives their chickens in the summertime to help keep them cool?? Or even fun toy ideas that would help keep them cool?

Take a muffin pan, and in each cup pour in some peas and/or berries and the like. Fill the remaining space with water. Freeze. Hot day? Pop a couple out and out in a pan out where the chickens are! Mine love it!

Thanks for the suggestion!

My newest treat idea isn't really acting like a coolant food/snack, but I make a cornbread for them, either weather they love it.

Before my rooster recently passed away, he loved it! Now my others love it!
I gave it to them when I got the barn roof replaced, they weren't worried about the noise anymore!

By the way, how are you today? :D

Truth be told? Tired. We're short handed at work and the past three weeks some key personnel have had planned vacations ... this past week was extremely busy, I put in over 60 hours, and I am BEAT! Getting too old for those kind of work weeks!
