    Its around the mid 90's sometimes during the day. Is there a such thing as too hot inside the coop????

    Yup. But 90s aint nothing. (at least for me, LOL!)

    Do they have a shaded area, like a covered, open run they can get into?

    Quote:There just in the coop most the day now and they get let out for a few hours! If i put a fan in the window should I put it blowing air in or sucking air and blowing it out??

    A greenhouse fan on ebay (solar) will run you $55 with shipping. I have one in my coop, but my coop is open-air. Kinda like a bus stop.

    As long as you are blowing....

    I am SOOO gonna get in trouble, LOL!!

    I would think out? But then couldnt you just put a vent in near the roof so it does it naturally? If you are gonna put in a fan, then you want to move the air around inside, not necessarily out or in.
