Any advice on driving in the Florida heat?
I can send you some flies and mosquitoes if you want. Free of charge, I'll even pay for shipping!It was 111 yesterday. But the mornings are still doable. I try to get my garden work done in the morning, though, so have not been driving. We haven't had bugs so far. Hardly any flies, even. I should probably knock on wood, though!
You're very sweet to offer, but I think I'll take our heat instead of the bugs. The horses have been laying out in the sun, soaking up Vit D, I suppose, so the heat isn't bothering them too much. Usually I spritz them in the afternoon. The poultry seems to mind it the most.I can send you some flies and mosquitoes if you want. Free of charge, I'll even pay for shipping!
We have a misting line we can hook up, but the chicks are not comfortable with that. They have shade and I run their water bowl over and make a muddy area. They also stand in the water bowl (it's a rubber feed tub). The big girls are free range, so they go under the trees or under my little barn, where ever they feel most comfortable. I can't let the chicks out to free range yet because of varmints.Well, we are in the (low) 90's this week too so I've got both!
Just curious, what do you do for your chickens/poultry to help them keep cool?
