We are getting the heat warning this weekend and it should be hitting 101 during the middle of the day. Today is was 90, but felt like 99. I was going out every couple hours and dunking the chickens into the ducks pool of cold water to cool them down. Right now it is still close to 80. The chickens were all about 3ft form each other on the roost with their wings out and all were panting. I have a fan that I can use this weekend, but I am not sure where to place it. Should I put it out in the run, where they are most of the day? Or should I put it in the coop because it is already shaded and will cool it down more in there? I'm heading to the beach this Thursday so we are having my cousin house-sit. She is the one that is going to have to take care of them and I don't want her to find any dead hens.
