This summer has been so unusually hot that is has made the day to day running of East Ferry free range poultry farm Ireland quite different.
The temperature has been too hot for the birds inside and outside so we have had to invest in fans for the houses to cool the birds down.
Fortunately there is still plenty of grass for them to graze on and they love to bathe themselves in the dry dusty soil.
We do need to make sure that they have plenty of fresh water to drink, but that is something that we would do whatever the weather. We aren’t complaining about the weather here in East Ferry, it is absolutely beautiful here at the moment.
