There are a few problems we face raising chickens here in West Africa. One of them is the heat. We are told by my father that the drinking water for the chickens need to stay under 87 deg. F. That poses a problem especially during hot season when the temps are rather high and we are drawing water from a water tower sitting in the sun. We are running new waterlines to the chicken houses to feed two 55 gal. drums to hold water in. We are going to try to use the God's principals of evaporation to bring the temp of the water down inside the drums. We will wrap barrels with burlap material and will keep the material damp. We will see if this works. Here are just a few photos of working with the chickens. Blessings to all.
