    Found this outdoor "patio" misting fan at local Wally-Mart! Haven't used misting capability, but fan is running 24/7 in the pen.

    Well... haven't used the mister. I'm a bit nervous about keeping the ground too wet due to fungus. My husband built a metal roof over the entire run, so it takes a while for the ground to dry when it's wet. But, lately, all their dust baths are within range of the fan's breeze. So, it must be giving them some relief. It's 100 plus here today & I feel so bad for them. We also bought a small AC/DC fan to put inside the coop. We almost went overboard in the predator-proof department, so I'm trying to increase ventilation. They really seem to enjoy the low setting of the small fan inside the coop.
