    alright my almost 14 week babies just came from a climate that was 70's in th day and 50-60's in the nights.now i have to go to california for a month and they have to stay in florida where it gets past the 100's and its MUGGY. just ask anyone who lives in florida iTs bad. and we just came from NC.
    can they standto be out in the heat for 5 weeks or more? cause my mother was reminding me of all these newspaper articles that said chickens dying in extreme heat. now they won't be in the sun the'll be under a porch thats closed in but i leave tuesday and i gotta know.help!

    As long as they have plenty of shade and water they should be ok. I'm from Florida and I know how bad it gets. The only thing I see is that since they are under a porch, it might be a good idea if they have a gentle fan for air circulation, especially during the afternoons and probably up until 10 or 11pm. I just hope they have plenty of room to move around. [​IMG]
