There are a number of videos on YouTube on keeping chickens cool when it is really hot. In one, a home grower in Phoenix (117 degrees) took a wide, shallow, round plastic container (apparently found in hardware stores) and placed bricks that came just above the water level and his girls stood on them repeatedly (alternating to get food, water) and they weren't even panting. In fact, they looked like they loved it. If it gets over 104 here and my girls are panting, I'm going to try that!

@hotcurltr Im so sorry, I read your post last night as I was falling asleep and it was the first thing on my mind this morning. I hope you got some rest and I hope you update with good news. Sounds like a long road to recovery.

Good to know thanks I heard tou can put it in their water as well and its beneficial is there a ratio to that as well?

Yes many do. I don't know the ratio, but don't think it has to be overly precise I think a "glug" is a water container would work. I have never done it though.

well, if Mr Mumbles is to be believed- Oreo is a boy, dang! Any takers with the possibility of a blue egg gene in him?
Robin, my roosters will flirt with juvenile boys so Mumbles may be wrong. My big Cornish boy escorts the 2 juvenile Brahma boys all over the yard, feeds them and rests with them. But with an adult male he's pretty aggressive.

Been working hard on the rabbitat this week, almost ready to post pics, maybe tonight. It won't be finished pics, but enough to see where I am going w/ it. Will be able to separate the male and female today, so when she delivers her 3rd litter (maybe next week) he won't be able to get her preggers again until I say so.

Yep, same ones. They harrass our animals all the time, park their lawn mower against the fence and leave it running, throw things at them, one day the lady sat in a lawn chair and ran her weed eater for three and a half hours. They've put a fence in the middle of our shared drive that leaves us inches from scraping our car every time we pull in or out of the driveway. Then they told us they were watching us and knew when we left the house, who was driving, who was watering the garden, when we did the dishes, etc. We've come home twice this summer and they were on our property messing with our fencing.

I called the police last week on them and haven't heard a peep since. I'm not sure if they spoke to them or not but someone threw a brick at our goat fence last night when we were putting them up for the night. These people are just nutso. Even if the police get involved, its never long before they are right back at it again.

One night they even shot at us with their pellet gun. The bullets dinged off the fence right behind us. I'm still scared to walk down the alley. We definitely called the police that night.

Honestly, we want to move to some acreage. We know no where is ever perfect but at least we wouldn't have neighbors so close harrassing our animals. I just can't stand that about them. How can anyone be so cruel as to hate animals?
I had bad neighbors and a bad school for my kindergarteners, We moved to our ten acre in December. We didn't sell the other house, but we moved anyway. We got lucky. Our old house sold a month after we moved. Best thing we ever did! It was risky. We didn't make any profit on our old house.
