Relief from the Heat in Chicken Land

Seriously. It is hot here! I just looked out the sewing room window and the chickens were panting in their yard.

Bruno and I went outside to release them to roam a bit.

It's a dangerous thing to do without supervision, but they need a little relief, too.

By the way, we have ripe figs now. Do you know how I know this? I saw the branches jumping and shaking. The chickens were jumping up and pecking the ripe figs. You have to laugh. Or at least I do. They are so funny.

I just gave them a nice big (over-big, actually) cucumber that has been cooling here inside. They very quickly demolished it!

Bruno said it was just too hot out there for him. He prefers the coolness of inside on days like this. :)

Me, too!

Have a great day!

Hugs and kisses,

Awww, poor chickens. If only they could take their feathers off!

It has been hot here too, hot enough for me to spend the last two days in the pool but the rainstorms are driving me indoors now. I love your chickens, they must be fun to watch.

It has been as hot here as well. 103 today. I have been spraying the chicken yard down with the garden hose everyday for my brood. The dig and lay in the cool damp ground. Hope you have some cool relief soon! blessings,Kathleen
