Keep Your Chickens Cool in the Summer

Cool Chicken Water
Cool Chicken Water
When you own poultry, you know how much water they drink in the summer time. These extremely hot summer days can be devastating to your flock. Here is a clever trick to help your hens drink more water and stay cool... Take a shallow tub and fill it with ice cubes, sunflower seeds, and water. Your hens will peck at the seeds in the tray, and get a cool drink at the same time. 
It's nice if your coop has ample shade for them in the summer time too, and try to put your water source where it will get shade for most of the day. That will help prevent algae from growing in their tank, and help keep you from having to clean it often.  Happy hydrated hens make lots of healthy eggs!

This years Montana Fair was a blast! There were so many 4-H successes to watch. Just knowing how much work those kids and their families put into showing their animals and all of the other projects was really rewarding. Shipton's Big R has always supported 4-H and we proudly were a part of the Junior Livestock Sale. Click HERE to read an article about the Junior Livestock Sale. We look forward to next years Montana Fair and wish the best of luck to all 4-Hers. Remember, you can count on us to carry everything you need for a successful Fair!
