    I've been using this brand of fan in the coop for over a year now and going strong. I actually have 3 of them in different sizes. All work great.

    I just use box fans.$15. You could hang it any number of ways and mine have 3 settings. And like John said just broom or brush off. 2 of mine even get wet and are still working fine.

    I got my baby guinnies tonight. So tiny and cute. I'll get pics tomorrow. And I also got a RIR pullet, 3 Cochin pullets( maybe Banty ). The little Cochins are real sweet!

    Hello,

    I am new to this forum. I don't actually own chickens but I am looking to purchase in approx 3 weeks somewhere between 50 and a hundred white cornish hens (boilers) which are around 42 days old. Do any of you have something like that?

    Thank you

    Grade A Large store egg.

    Matilda's first egg.

    Matilda is the name I'm assigning to whichever hen laid it. Age 20 weeks, 3 days (the hen, not the egg).

    Now all I need is 4 more and I can have breakfast.

    Hehe! Congrats!!!!!



    [​IMG] and our thread! [​IMG] I have raised cornish cross twice, they are not like a "normal" chicken. Feed hounds, will lay on the food dish and eat...and eat... Ask away any questions you have! We are a chatty group [​IMG]
    Oh you have to post pics! I love the little guineas!

    Yep. That's what I've read over and over about the heat and cold. Some from upper New York said even in negative double digits (Faranheight, just for you John) they don't insulate the coop. Only keep the water from freezing.

    And quit advertising, silly. I've had one of my posts ''edited by staff'' with no notice whatsoever. What were you selling?? Isn't John advertising in the post below?

    These are nice, small and convient, I agree. However, I prefer the triple beams. Never need batteries with those. Not nearly as portable, but then again, with no electronics, no batteries to replace and you don't have to worry about them reporting to the guvmint what you are doing, like all electronic devices do, or how many eggs you've weighed lately.

    Seriously! If you don't believe me, then just ask one of my co-workers from years ago. You know those big green relay boxes near stop lights? They are really scanners to check your wallets/purses for credit cards/money you have. There is a chip in your driver's license to identify you. I could go on and on with these theories, but I just bring them up in jest. But I think John really believes these things.
