It is 77 degrees today. Luckily there is some cloud cover and a small cool breeze blowing, but my CX are sprawled out and panting. I see many of them drinking, but worry that some of them are just hanging out in the coop, not going out into the run to drink. I have the run covered with a tarp, so it is shady as well. Should I put another water container in the coop for the lazies? Why do CX struggle so much in the heat? The rest of the week should be cooler and let up a little, thank goodness. The bigger these birds get the more I worry. They will be 6 weeks tomorrow.
