Is anyone else getting a bit leery of what the rest of this summer is going to bring? I woke up this morning and my first thought is how am I going to get my girls through this day? They are calling for temps of 101 degrees and no rain or break in sight for the rest of the week. I went out to check on them yesterday afternoon and it was like the run was full of chicken puddles...lumps of panting feathers. I keep the water fresh and as cool as I can, I have a large fan in their coop and gave them melon rind as a cool treat. I can't let them free range because of predators and they just aren't old enough yet. Maryland just doesn't get this hot. Call it gobal warming or a stalled Bermuda high. Whatever it is it's beginning to scare me.
