Do chickens get hot? Do they know what to do if they get too hot? When their babies they either move to the heat lamp or away but right now their coop is super hot and they wont go outside. I have 3 vents and the run door so they can come and go as they please. Today it's in the upper 90's as well as the next couple days. I went to check on them to make sure they had water and they are all panting in the coop. I tried to get them to go out but they wont. I just dont want them dropping deat of heat stroke. We are going to put a window in there but were going to wait until the colder months becaus I thought the sun would be too much in there for them. Thanks!
