    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I wish I could help you with that one but I have no experience with South Africa. I would suggest posting on our South Africa thread at https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/595787/chicken-breeders-or-folks-in-south-africa. Hopefully someone there will be able to help you. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    Hi James and welcome to BYC - great to have you join us. Thankfully it rarely pushes 30c here in Nairobi, but I'd say if you make sure that there's plenty of shade available and put ice cubes in their drinking water a few times a day, they should be fine.

    All the best
