We lost four of our baby guineas today to the heat. I found them next to the chicken coop. It was their first official day out. It looks like they couldn't find their way back in. They were fine earlier when I was out there. Running in and out of the coop/run. I guess they got hot and tried to hide in the shade only to overheat anyway. Poor little things. Now we are down to seven.
The biggest problem for me with homesteading is my big heart. There are areas it needs to toughen up.
The good news for the day is it is getting dark outside and I can hear thunder. Somebody is going to get rain and I hope that includes me.
