We tried a mister. It has worked well, but the soil, dry from 5 inches of rain in 7 months, has gone into stinky decomposition overdrive. And still the birds are slow roasting in the coop....
But my nephew arrived for a visit. Free labor, hooray!
We moved Jailbird Vo and the chicks into the adult pen. Buffy gave them a warm welcome.
|Say hello to my little friend|
|Chicks in the mist|
Only a fool would put a poultry net over of roof before painting it. Sadly, I am that fool.
|There must be a better way|
|Not as bad as I feared|
The white roof cut the coop temperature by 5-10 degrees. Now the hot chicks are cool. Aaaaaaaay!
