Keeping chickens cool and hydrated in summer can be a tricky task. Here are our three top tips for happy chooks:
- Hang a vegetable holder in your garden and fill it with fresh watermelon for a refreshing treat.
2. Make sure there’s plenty of fresh water for your girls to drink. We leave a few more water containers out as our chickens are drinking lots more than usual (or are to be found standing in one to cool down!). Add a few ice cubes to keep the water cooler for longer.
3. Open vents in the coop to help ventilation, or you could even install a fan for super-happy hens.
