Last night it rained. Oh the chickeny joy!
The drought and heat has been hard for everybody. Spraying with the hose helped bring down some of the heat exhaustion, but I sure collected a lot of stink eyes.
We finally got rain (and lost power). But we had rain! And the weather shield of tarps and plastic sheet worked!
When I let the chickens out the ground was not dusty. They were puzzled by the unfamiliar lack of bathing material, but worked over the run anyway.
