Its 97 degrees out here in California and I was wondering how to keep my outdoor chicks cool? They are around three months old and are outdoors scratching, I have some ice water out there for them, which they are drinking, and since my yellow chick wasnt drinking very much I sat her in my lap and gave her water through a syringe. She really liked it and kept opening her mouth for more. My smart girl. I also sprayed some mist on them and I have a fan plugged in for em. Anything else I can do? They are doing this sort of panting thing, beaks open throat going in and out. Is that okay? We don't have AC so the temp inside is the same one outside, so bringing them in won't make much of a difference. In fact to keep myself from melting into a puddle I am frequently putting my head inside the fridge.
