Hot Weather Chickens
Many Southern states in the U.S. experience extreme heat waves, especially during the summertime season. This can make it difficult for many people and animals, including chickens. If you live in one of these areas and are looking for chickens well-adapted to live in these warm-weather conditions, look no further than the selection of heat-tolerant chickens available at Cackle Hatchery.
Heat-hardy chickens are adapted to living in warmer weather. This is due to distinctive features of their breed, such as a lighter color feather pattern that serves to reflect sunlight rather than absorb it. Hot-weather chickens also tend to have more exposed skin in their combs, which allows the birds to more easily radiate heat away from their bodies during the warmest conditions. These birds also are generally smaller birds overall, meaning they can more easily find shade and have less overall body mass to heat up in the summer sun.
Many of these birds are also prized for their white-colored eggs, making them an excellent choice for anyone looking to raise chickens for egg production. The adaptability of these hot-hardy chickens makes them an excellent choice for anyone living in hot climates, and you’re sure to enjoy the benefits of raising these warm-weather birds.
