Dealing with the Heat in the Summer

Dealing With Summer Heat in the Summer

Much of the United States is experiencing some pretty warm weather…it is summer after all! I can’t complain because our temps have been in the 80s and 90s…not bad! Usually, we are dealing with the low 100s this time of year…and we’ll most likely have hotter weather before July and August are over.

Even with our relatively mild temperatures, I know I have to be careful not to overdo things in the mid-day sun and the chickens need extra shade and water to deal with the heat and keep laying their yummy eggs. The rising mercury inspired me to pull up a fan and write some posts about keeping your cool. 🙂 I hope you find some helpful ideas in my posts!

Are you having a summer heatwave? How do you stay cool? Share your tips in the comments!
