    It wasn't a super hot day, but I had the sprinkler on the lawn, and just a corner of the chicken run was getting sprinkled. My little hens seemed to like it... it wasn't much water, but they would go scratch around in the mud. Didn't seem to bother them at all. They are 3 1/2 months old and usually scared of everything!

    ur lucky! LOL I have 28 chicks who will stand in the unprotected part of the run during a powerful thunderstorm. But, if i try to spray them w/ the hose they run and scream like I am trying to kill them!! Dumb chickens!!

    Quote:X2 They run when I get the hose but love their little pool and will stand in the mister they're soaking wet.
