Chickens in Hot Weather

Steve's happy face

I posted this picture on Instagram last week, as I always find Steve’s *cheerful* expression quite funny!

Although the hens have space to roam, food to peck, a dusty dust bath, shady places and lots of cool water, they still dislike the hot weather and it leaves them irritable!

This post, on the Omlet forum, gives useful reminders of how to ensure that your chickens fair better in the warm weather.

I especially like the thought of putting cucumber and grape pieces into their water and letting them enjoy a poultry form of ‘apple bobbing’!
