pampered poultry

Yes, that's a brand new box fan and yes, it's in the broiler pen. Its been so hot here this past week and broilers are dropping like flies! One friend lost 5 recently and another lost like 70! that was his entire flock! He had a 3 foot barrel fan on them to boot! To say he is devastated would be an understatement! These guys are just three weeks old but the heat still bothers them. Turkeys not so much, so far. I've started putting them all out on pasture this week, but in the heat of the day here of late they've been parked in front of the fan, and seemingly enjoying it!

So what's the view from your world about that? I'd enjoy hearing it.
