Today has been perfect though...look at the current temperature...
Despite the heat, the chickens are doing well. Jack fashioned an air conditioner of sorts using the nesting box. He added a fan, and we keep frozen water bottles in the box to blow cool air under the run. That, and keeping frozen water bottles inside their waterer, and letting them free range during the heat of the day, has helped. They are healthy and growing well. The day the temperature reached 110°f , I did make a temporary pen and bring them inside for a few hours. OMG that is the LAST time I ever do that! Just having them inside for a short time, they made a huge mess. For you see...chickens have no manners, and are pooping machines. They were confined to a small space, so clean up was easy, but NEVER AGAIN! Chickens belong outside. I think I might install chicken coop air conditioning before I ever do that again. lol

Casey did have his final appointment with the orthodontist on Thursday, and he has been officially released from braces, retainers and all is complete! It has been quite the journey for him, and we are both so happy it is over. And his smile is amazing. Here are his before and after photos.
Until next time...enjoy life, and be kind to one another.
