Yesterday went to check on the chickens and it was near 90 degree so I sat a fan for my chicken so they would stay cool. Lucky chickens.

I have a box fan hooked up in the coop for the girls that are laying. It is hanging above the nest boxes. haven't had to turn it on yet, but will probably soon. Oh and another thing I do to help them keep cool- I ice their water. Yep they have the 5 gallon bucket waterers and I freeze 2 liter bottle and put in the bucket, fill up with cold well water, put on base and flip. Keep their water cold for awhile. They seem to really enjoy it

coop trying to cool them not sure if it helps or not.my husband is not understanding at all.he says they will be fine.

I wish it would get warm enough for fans! It's still cold here. brrrr.... But when the heat comes, my chickens and horses all get fans and ice-water!
