Thanks Derrick. We’ve had a brutal heat wave here. Animals always know best – seek shade, lay low and wait it out!
The heat seems unbearable
What beautiful birds, so well cared for. As always, thanks for sharing.
I love this photo. It immediately brought to mind my childhood living in SE Oklahoma. In the summertime shade was a treasured place to be! I’ve seen chickens just like this sheltering from the brutal sun in any shade there was. Beautiful photo and thanks for the memories.
With the heat we’re having, I’d be hiding in there too 🙂
Yes. I am sitting in my garden watching just that.
