I hatched 12 Silkies & Bantam Cochins today. And it was 108 in the shade here today, and also in our garage where I have put the brand new babies in one of my brooders. They are supposed to have 95 degree temp. when hatched, and it is 105 or a little over. I hope they don't croak on me before they even dry off good! Boy, I am SO, SO ready for it to cool down a bit. I put some of those flat ice packs in my smaller coops, and the chickens are sitting on them. So far I haven't lost anyone.
