Please advise... we have been trying for 2 weeks to get our 10 week old chicks outside on a permanent basis. It's been in the 90s with heat index in the 100s. We have them in their open air run, but have been bringing them inside at dusk to sleep. I'm scared to lock them up in their coop. My husband's temperature gun says its 96 degrees still and its 6:15pm. That's with the human access door fully open and their pop door closed to keep them in the run. Today has been the worst so far. I have continually added ice to their water to keep it cold. I've dipped their feet in the water, fed them ice cold lettuce even. They are STILL panting. I'm scared for them. How many hours of panting is too much?? Hubby even put his huge shop fan on them, just outside the run.
