Hi Everyone, First time chicken owner, first time poster. I live in PA and we are expecting our heat index to hit 110 degrees tomorrow. We love the girls (3 months old) and decided for their comfort to move them into the barn for the weekend in order to beat the heat. My husband really out did himself building them a super deluxe area complete with post and rail roosts, a fan for a nice breeze etc... We got the girls into the new area and they freaked out. One of the girls actually flew over a 7' chicken wire wall and almost killed herself in the process. We then pulled their covered PVC/hardware cloth run into the barn (no small task) thinking that they were used to it and that they would settle down. They spent the next 1/2 hour trying to trample each other in the corners and ramming their bodies against the sides in panic mode. I couldn't take it anymore, someone was going to die from stress or injury so I was able to transport them one by one back to their outside coop. As soon as they were back in their coop they settled down and went to their roosts. All were fine this morning. I've seen alot of posts about chickens staying in the basement and garage during heat waves, what did I do wrong to have them so freaked out? Has anyone ever experienced anything like this? I don't want the girls to suffer in the heat but then again I don't want to scare them to death. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
