    LOL

    I think I know the website but actually they don't sun burn. Their necks do turn deep red but it's normal not a sunburn thing. It's supposed to be the same skin reaction as on the combs. Actually it's a good thing if their necks turn deep red, it shows they are healthy.

    Our summers are always 110-120F and they just don't show any sunburn.
