    We are in FL, have had temps mid to upper 90's with no issues here. They have lots of shade and 5 water stations too.

    Triple digits forever here. Ice water twice a day. Do not let them run out of water or feed.

    They Seem To Tolerate Heat Better Than Many Other Speces Of Bird. Shade + Constant Water Are Keys. Your Near The Coast So You Should Have Decent Seas Breeze That Will Help Them Tolerate Heat
