It is pretty hot here in western MD (around 85-90 with high humidity). The girlies just went out to their new coop and enclosed run yesterday! They r really liking it...but r really panting! They have a different part of the run in shade as the day goes by. I have been putting ice in their water to help them...& they have tons of fresh grass (cuz they just went int the run). I saw a water mister at Home Depot this weekend that I was thinking about getting for myself. Would it hurt the girlies if I set up the mister to run for a little while in one area of their run to help cool them off? Not sure if it will hurt them?? They r a very eclectic bunch of girlies. I have light & buff brahma's, polish, silkies, sulkie, EE's, BO's, RIR, NH, barred rocks, salmon favorelles, and a few unknowns! LOL They r 7, 8 & 9 weeks old. Any advice would b greatly appreciated! I know I am about dying in this heat myself and would like to do anything I can to help the chickies b more comfortable!
