Over the past few years I've struggled to keep my flock cool on the really sweltering summer days. Neither meat birds nor laying hens like to get sprayed with water. This summer I tried turning the hose nozzle on "MIST" and hooked it on the fence. Voila! Most every broiler waddled in and parked under the cool mist. They didn't move even after getting drenched. Seems like the bigger droplets scare them, but the mist does not.
