  2. That is very hot!! Lots of cold water. Frozen fruit is always helpful. Make sure they have shade to find refuge under. Wet down areas on the ground that they can cool off in. If you can, spray a mist of water on the chickens directly to cool them down. Most importantly though, make sure they have LOTS fresh water.

    Water and shade. If you can, make a spot where the sun only touches in the morning or evening. Since they need water, try wetting the food for them. Moist food goes down better then dry.
