    my ducks and geese are in the pond panting like they were stuck in the oven. My turkeys are in the shade laying flat out with their wings spread and panting.

    Make sure they have shade(even a beach umbrella will do for now) and their pond is clean and cool. You may want to mist your turkeys abit with the hose or even a water bottle.

    they are in the shade. my thermometer say 104, it doesn't do heat index. I have changed my shirt 3 times and have only sprayed weed killer and moved ducks that need to go to the next pen.
