Hi everyone, I just ordered a Brahma and a Cochin with the latest flock of chicks and I was wondering how they cope with summer heat. We live in the mountains of Western North Carolina so it's generally pretty temperate, but July and August can get pretty miserable. The current flock consists of orpingtons, australorps, and black stars; aside from holding their wings out in the shade they seem to do just fine (the cold seems to bother them more than the heat!) What sort of tactics have you used to help keep the girls cool in the summer? They loved frozen blueberries last year, but I'm looking for some less messy, more budget friendly ideas Thanks!
