"The Bucket of Death"
That hen had been under that black bucket, in the 90+ degree heat for at least four hours. I'm surprised that she was alive. And really, I should know better. I should have flipped that bucket over the moment I saw it. Or, better yet, just put it away with the other buckets. I had a similar thing happen a few years ago with a feed bowl in the brooding pen with the baby chicks. Bowl flipped over sometime during the day and when I went to feed them, flipped the bowl back over and out popped a very sweaty, very lethargic chick.
So, see any upside down buckets, bowls, trays? Flip them over or put them away. Learn from my mistake(s).
