    I have heard wonderful things about BYC. Glad to be a part of your community. We have 6 chicks. They are 6 weeks old now. We are learning a lot. What are some suggestions for cooling them off? We are going into a 4-day stretch of 90+ Temps.

    We've got the 90 degree stretch also and about 200 % humidity , how it feels to me anyway. Shade. shade and more shade for your chicks, make sure they don't run out of fresh, clean , water. Treats like watermelon help keep them hydrated as well.
