    Inspite of Blue Ice in the waters, plenty of shade, and a big fan 2 14wk roos died from the heat. One Del and one RIR. Both were in good physical condition but just could not take the heat. No pangs of quilt or renting of clothes, it is just the way of natural things.

    Sorry bout your loss but I have a question for you...what symptoms were they exhibiting, I am trying to figure out if the pullets I lost were due to heat but I haven't really spoken to anyone who has lost some to heat as of yet.

    this heat lately is relentless...been record high here too in Northern ontario, so not normal!!
