    Hello! I'm from TN...currently have 9 chickens and 2 ducks that are 2-3 months old. One of my chickens mysteriously died yesterday? It might be because of overheating...the temperature where I live the reaches up to 110 degrees Fahrenheit...Anything I can do to cool them down?

    Give them "Watermellon rind bowls" from the refrigerator. you cut the end off the watermellon, eat the good stuff yourself, well some of it and give them the bowl to eat the cool fruit. you can also provide misters for them. frozen water bottles to "roost on" durring the day, freeze grapes for a cool treat
