    Idk for sure
    But they can get sun stroke cause I've friend in Australia and they have to put shade over thier run because it can get up to 35 degrees and they lost a batch to the sun thier first year keeping chickens

    They are spoiled. I sat in front of their pen yesterday and took turns holding them and petting them.

    My understanding from people who do rescues is the they can sunburn where they have no feathers and their skin shows. I have NO personal experience with any of mine getting sunburned. That is just what I have heard.

    I know there is a featherless type of chicken -bred to be like that, so much easily to pluck. They have to have sun protection. Think that is really sad that they can't live like a regular chicken. What next ? Maybe a poor chicken that self cooks.
