Summertime = watermelons + sprinklers
A couple of times a day I go out and hose down their pen and give them an opportunity to play in the sprinklers. Funny thing about chickens is... they don’t really much like the sprinkler while it's running. In fact, they immediately head into the henhouse to wait until it stops. I've tried setting it to "mist". They're still not interested. But after after it’s turned off they shoot back outside to scratch around in the nice cool, damp ground.
Fortunately, our heatwave will be over by Sunday and we'll be back to our normal high 90's, low 100's during the day and cool 70's at night.
