I just made the rounds outside to see how first my chicks and then my adult chickens are dealing with our 103 degree, dangerous humidity weather. The chicks were fine, though clearly miserable. Then I went out to the adult coop. As I was walking up and stopped to adjust the flow on their outside water source, I noticed that 4 of my hens were really crowded up against the door of the coop. I said to them, "What's wrong with you silly girls? Don't you know how hot it is in that coop?? Come over here and get a nice cool drink of water!" Then I actually walked over to the coop. I had forgotten to open the pop door so the hens could get inside during the day to lay their eggs. As soon as I opened it all four hens rushed inside and another came running from out of the woods to join them. Last year I forgot to lock the pop door at night once. This year I forgot to open it in the morning. My chickens should be safe from my mistakes for another year.
