Hot Weather and Chicken Keeping

Like most places recently, we experienced a heat wave.
When you have livestock...of any need to be aware.
It's no joke.
A girl I know lost her tom turkey to heat stress.
Even if you provide enough's not enough.
This past week was 29 degrees the shade.

I saw this post on Pinterest...about putting stuff in ice cubes for your hens.
It cools them off.
It's a boredom buster.
It has healthy treats inside.

What's not to love?

They were definitely curious.

They loved it!

PS.  We left peas out on the counter.
They dried up a bit overnight...not the most desirable for eating.
So I threw them in an ice cube tray along with some old frozen corn from last year.
Why not?

How do you beat the heat with your livestock?
