Had my first real heart or heat related loss today. Have lost two earlier from leg problems. Tonight, I moved the crosses from their normal place, under the trees, into the chicken coop, because we had irrigation. A couple of the birds got pretty upset. I guess between the 110 degree heat and the stress of a slightly different place, it was too much. Luckily, I saw her going down and was actually able to process her before she had passed away, but it was really close. The thing I've noticed, and was wondering if anybody else has noticed this, is that the three that had issues were my three smallest birds. Much smaller than the rest of the group. It makes me wonder if they had genetic disorders that caused them to have weak legs, hearts, and to not grow as well as the rest, or if it's just coincidence. I mean, tonight's chicken had to be pretty hardy to have made it through June and July in Arizona heat.
