Hi guys! so over the years, I've had a lot of birds die from the heat. So over the years, I have learned how to be able to cool them off and keep them alive over the years as well. There is one important rule for keeping your birds alive in the summer. It is NO FANS. I have a problem with fans because they could keep the birds to cool. What I mean is, fans work so well that when they are taken off, the birds get really hot and die. I have found other ways that in my opinion work better than fans. one is (and my favorite) water. You all know that chickens don't like water, but I found that if I put my hose on mist or sprinkle it cools them off quite a bit. I put it on a couple times a day, usually not at a specific time just when I feel they are REALLY hot. Another one is frozen watermelon. I love using frozen watermelon because it cools them down and they love it. While I give them the frozen watermelon, I also give them fresh, cold water and put apple cider vinegar in it. Depending on how tired or lazy or hot they look I'll put sugar in there too, just to boost their energy. Last but not least I freeze jugs of water. The jugs help quite a bit if they know how to use them. I personally had to train my birds to use them but some of you may have smart birds (unlike me) and don't have to train them. I'm sure you all know but your birds need shade. If they don't have shade this REALLY affects them, I had three birds die once because they had no shade. These methods have helped me a lot lately, though some of my birds still die, this helps there not to be as many as there would be. Hope this helps someone!
