seems like I'm full of ?s today, but I would like some feedback, experiences, etc. from you all... I live in MO, and we've been in a heat wave for the last week, temps in mid-upper 90s and heat indices over 100, and man is it humid! I've heard a lot of different opinions on keeping the chickens cool, some people do nothing out of the ordinary and some go to a lot of effort to cool off their birds. This being my first year with chickens, I kinda took a middle-of-the-road approach, if it's just warm, same routine as usual(and they free range and hide out in the shade when they need to), and when it's super duper hot(like today) I put a jug of frozen water under a fan inside their coop for when they come to lay in the nesting boxes. I've noticed a few times over the past few hot days that I'll see one of them nesting, but when they come out, no egg. do you think they are that uncomfortable? something else I should make note of is that they are only a couple of weeks into laying, dont know if that has anything to do with it. so have you guys ever had slower production when it's really hot? should I try a little harder to cool them off?
