    Where I live near Elk City Oklahoma it is windy dry and hot. You must never let your chickens run out of water or they will dehydrate and die.

    All of Oklahoma has experienced several weeks of unusually hot weather. Shade and plenty of water are important to keep your poultry healthy this summer.

    I see from some of your posts that you raise a wide variety of poultry. Come on over to the Okies in the BYC thread and tell us about your poultry. I have some Saipan Jungle Fowl and Malays and think they are the greatest broody hens ever and that their personality is great. They make wonderful mother hens. I also have some red golden pheasants and am looking for a hen for my yellow golden pheasant male.

    So how are things besides dry out your way? The rain has sure been spotty this year, it would sure be nice if a big line of rain would form out in the Tx. Panhandle and give the state a good soaking. Talked to a guy the other day that got rained out of the field last Sunday but he just had to move 2 miles North to be able to work ground again.

    Sayre, Oklahoma
    I am sorry to bother you but since you have lived here I was wondering do you know the laws about having backyard chickens here? I am currently living in Sayre and cannot find any laws against or for them. However according to the post office this morning someone else has ordered baby chicks too.
