    it is so hot here in dear old SC. my chickens are in a large covered area and it is shady as well, but still so hot. i got a patio mister and set it up in there and they seem to be grateful. it sprays many fine mists and cools the air. can anyone tell me if this will harm them in any way?

    If its only water i cant see why it would .. as long as its not soaking them and then they roast in the sun ..just my opinion though not fact [​IMG]

    As long as there's a place they can get out of the mist if they feel like it...they should be fine. Can't see why not [​IMG]

    I saw a big organic free range operation from California and they had water mister setup on the moveable nesting/roosting houses to help the chickens with the heat.
