I have three lovely ladies, but today the weather people said it was going to feel like 113 degrees here today! I've been making ice cakes with cherries, watermelon, mealworms and lettuce, hosing down their run, and giving them ice water.... Is there anything else I should do? They're going to be free-ranging almost all day today and when they're not they're in their run. Any help is appreciated!!

It sounds like you are doing just about everything you can - the only other thing I can think of is adding a fan or two to the coop to get the air moving. Making sure they have plenty of clean, cool, drinking water is a must. When it is this hot, I let my chickens out early in the morning (as soon as I get up!) so they can free range before it gets too hot.
