In addition to the fresh water, we like to freeze blocks like this. We cut up some fruit/veggies/herbs, and just pour water over it and freeze overnight. We had some strawberry, blueberry, and mint in this one. We place it in a larger bowl, and they can peck at the ice, eat the fruit or veggies, and drink the ice water from the bottom. It is also a great to keep them from getting bored.
We also freeze bottles of water and place them in the nesting boxes. It doesn’t matter how hot it gets, the girls always come back to their nesting boxes to lay. It is extremely hot inside, so these frozen bottles give them something cool to snuggle up to while they are laying their eggs.
One thing that really helps in the roosting/nesting box area is this exhaust fan. Between the fans we have installed, and the frozen bottles, the only other thing we can do is attempt to pull as much of the heat out of this area as possible. As we all know, heat rises, so this exhaust fan is installed in the top of the box, and we leave it running day and night.
