Before considering this, you might want to save your money. In my quest for relieving my chickens in this heat, I bought a "mister" at WalMart as have others. The problem I encountered made it unuseable however. My chickens are located about 75 feet from the house. In order to reach them I have two 50 foot lengths of garden hose. The "mister" screws on to the last section of hose and reduces the waterflow into a 3/8 inch curly mini-hose with the spray jet attached. With the garden hose laying in the sun, due to the reduction in size of the mini-hose, the jet mists nicely but is at a temperature of about 150 degrees! Hot enough to make it very uncomfortable on your hand. If you get one of these, make sure your hose does not get direct sun on it. I dont have much shade and certainly not enough to keep the water cool. Hope this helps if you are considering buying one!
