Oh, that's just terrible. I know how hot my ladies get and they have a fan and a cold footbath to use if they get too warm. Just sad.
Well, given the heat here, without the AC, I'm not sure our chooks would have made it thru the major heat we had. But they are cold-hardy breeds, so heavy dense feathering, not broilers with thin feathering.
So very tragic.
It's surprising that back up generators were not in place. Or were they? I wasn't able to view the article.
No air movement...would be a death sentence. Glad nobody was locked inside of the house with them! The heat is ridiculous down there.
I wonder which is worse, dying from a heat wave or being killed by the normal practices . A lot of poultry die of dehydration or by heat exhaustion on the way to slaughter houses, and even more are scalded alive. Its a dirty business. This should be a wake up call.
I'd much prefer to be stunned and killed than die under the heat in excess of 150* inside a barn.
