In the Brooder
- May 22, 2012
They do seem to luv cool concrete in the summer. We have a covered patio and all of our chooks can be found there on a hot summer afternoon. Then I get sent out in the late evening to hose off the patio so the DW and I can spend the evening on it. The chooks do NOT, by the way, like the hose. The hose will usually send them lumbering to the coop for the evening. Like you, I need to create a cool, shady place for them to spend their days so I don't have to hose off the patio so much!".... My next step is a pond and grape armor to offer a cool place for them to lay down in the summer. Currently its a struggle to keep them away from the house and off my cool concrete."
