I started my chicken venture last fall and this will be my first summer managing my flock. I'm concerned because today the temperatures have soared into the 90's and both my hens and chicks are panting. My hens have the ability to go outside and cool down, but I don't currently have a set up that would allow my chicks the same - I can take their "home" outside for fresh air, but I don't want to leave them unmonitored. I dipped everyone's feet in cool water and lightly wet their feathers. They're still panting. Right now I have a fan set up for my chicks. My husband will not allow anyone to come in the house... am I keeping them as comfortable as possible?? Another question - the chicks are opening the mouths up real wide - almost like a big yawn, and then going back to panting - what is that about? I'm worried.
