here in NC it has been quite hot the past few days- 95! this is my first year with turkeys. they are in a horse barn, in a stall with windows cut out in the back wall for cross-ventilation, as the front of the stalls are most wire from half way to the top. we get a decent breeze here, but i decided to put a fan blowing on them too. im not sure how much its helping but i figure it will move the stuffy air around at least. the cielings are low, so it does hold the heat. overall it doesnt seem too much hotter in there, but im just wondering how they generally do in the heat? all of my birds have been panting in the hottest part of the day. also, i know this isnt the section for peafowl but im going to take a shot and ask about them as well. i just want to make sure if they are sensitive to overheating that i get more fans on them.
