    I had a small rectangle plastic tub in my chickens play area.It was hot today and not realizing the danger I left it right side up.Approx 3 hours later I was checking my chickens and found 2 under the tub.1 was dead and the other was just making it.I put the 1 making it in a kiddy pool that I have and got him wet.I then placed him under a fan that I have in my coop to cool him down.It worked and he seems to be doing fine.Just a reminder to watch what is laying around in the chickens area that could harm them.
