Trying to beat the heat

Man, oh, man is it hot! We’ve had triple digit temps for the last week. After losing two hens and a turkey, we decided we had to do something for the animals. We’ve moved the baby barred rocks and turkeys out of the brooder into chicken tractors in the shade. And we put up a shade structure on the back of the Eggmobile to give the layers some extra shade in the hot part of the day.

The pigs have been getting sprayed a couple times per day. They L-O-V-E it!

We’ve had no rain since June 11. I sure hope the weather breaks soon!
