I hope you weren’t expecting a recipe here!
We have discovered that our little brood has a pretty low tolerance for heat and direct sun light. It isn’t uncommon for the chickens to exit the coop and instantly flop into a pile and fall asleep. One after another, they walk into a sunny spot, fluff out their feathers, get weak in the knees and sprawl to the ground in slow-motion with their wings opened.
Their narcolepsy episodes never last long. They managed to pull themselves together and run for the shade after a minute or two. But it is very amusing to see them run across a sunny patch, slow down and have their knees turn to jelly before they make it to the other side.
I think I might enjoy a catnap myself here in this sunbeammmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm….
