to you all...
Gee but it's been
HOT! Here on the farm we are struggling to keep our chickens cool.
I hope the rain comes soon.
grass is all "crispy" and every single chicken is lying within
the "shade line". Full grown, full feathered chickens really
take strain in the heat.
don't sweat, so the only mechanism they have to cool themselves is by
raising their wings and panting. This weekend I had to actually
DUNK some of them in cold water to reduce their body temperatures.
sometimes I wish for a "PROPER" chicken houses that have
automatic temperature regulators. But then again with this load shedding debacle, I will
wait until we can find an integrated SOLAR solution.
important for Red Barn to convert to solar, but we just
don't have the funding at this stage. Eventually a complete solar
installation on the farm WILL pay for itself, but it's a huge
capital outlay initially and not really income producing.
Do any of you
have plans to go "off the grid" using the power of our sun?
We'd love to hear what you
have done or are doing!
