    I live in Nevada where temps can reach well over 110 degrees in July for a few weeks. Do I need to provide a circulating fan or something to keep the cuties cool

    Here in Nor Cal we had 106 temperatures about 10 days ago. (already!!!)

    To combat the heat I put up a "mister" in the run and the chickies loved it. I hung it about 3' off the ground.

    We have a vent fan (pulls hot air out) in our main coop. We got crazy hot here last summer and it was a big help.

    You can also freeze soda bottles to put out in their run to help the flock cool off. Our gang loved them and we often found them roosting on the bottles, to cool themselves off.



    Hope this helps!
