I'm plenty worried - it's over 100 out there. Our 12 week old chickens are doing some panting. we've put in ice bottles, both in their water and in the run (but they're scared of the one in the run).. The coop is in the shade (it's in the sun from 10 am-1pm or so) I've watered the roof down.. fed them frozen melon, .. We're going away and leaving someone chicken sitting, but what if it's like this on days that she works? I'm in New Jersey, so it DOES get over 100, but not regularly,.. i'm just really getting worried for the babies! How dangerous is it? Should i tell her to put them in the cellar in their old brooder (that they've outgrown) if it's like this outside, since it's cool down there? Or will they be ok outside? My family keeps telling me 'they'll be ok, they're chickens!'..
