A: Great Question! Actually, chickens do not sweat! In the backyard settings like mine, the hens do a great job of beating the heat on their own. Shade from trees and shelters helps, plus they will "pant", which releases moist heat from their little chicken innards! They also will scratch in the dirt for daily dust baths, and can be seen laying down, letting the coolness from the earth remove heat from their bodies. And, don't forget plenty of fresh clean water - very important for healthy hens and good egg production!
