My chickens normally roam about the back yard. Taking naps in the shade. Today I found them all hunkered down in the chicken coupe? Is this what most chickens do when it's too hot to scratch?

They'll find a nice cool spot to be. Sounds like the coolest spot must be there in that coop. you can even dig a little in a space you don't mind being dug up, to give them access to cooler, moister dirt. You can offer them more water access too.

Definitly lots of fresh water with ice in it. Right now mine are hunkered under an oak tree near the water containers. I say their hangin out at the watercooler.

Mine love going up the mountain behind the house where there is tons of shade, but they seem to rely a lot on the shade under our deck. Lots of bugs and stuff to eat

If your container is large enough, why not freeze a milk jug and throw it in the fountion? When it thaws just refreeze it and reuse it

Kudos,if you coop is the coolest spot. Mine prefer outside in shade to their coop
