Yes, it's for my pet chicken. She's a 6 y/0 hen. A big fat fluffy yellow Buff Orpington, big baby who follows me around and jumps up to sit on my lap. The walls of her wooden coop is vented on 3 sides, but on the hottest nights, with no breeze outside, she just doesn't get enough air circulation. The little fan sets up on a ledge of one of the window vents, and is placed about 3 ft. away from the roost where she actually sits at night. The little fan basically just stirs up the air, so it is somewhat cooler for her. On the hottest nights I use the high setting, and on just warm nights I use the low setting. To actually have this fan hitting her directly, (or your face), it would need to be placed closer, maybe like1-2 feet away. The fan is nice and compact, with a stable base. (Just unfold it when you go to set it up, it will make several clicking sounds as you do.) The fan is nice and quiet, just a soft hum, even on high. You will need to put in 2 size D batteries to start. There is a tiny little screw (don't totally remove it all the way) for the battery cover. To remove the screw, and to replace it each time for changing batteries, you will need a very small Phillips with either a very short handle, or a pretty long handle. Both kinds have worked for me. I've only had the fan for a few days, and run it only at night, so can't report how good or bad it goes through batteries. I get mine at the dollar store. I have ordered a second one of these fans (couldn't get it from Walmart this time though, they were currently out, so had to use ebay) to have 2 of them side by side. I'm thinking that may be a little more effective.
This is my third purchase of these little fans, which I use to cool myself when I have a hot flash. They work great for this, and I have found they can last from as little as 2 years to 10. I had the on/off switch problem with the last one I bought, but can still use it on high speed and have had it for 2 years.
I purchased 5 devices, 1 for me and the other 4 for other individuals for a trip to Africa. Mine arrived disfunctional. I checked with the other users and theirs worked. I was very disappointed that funationality and quality of the device was not verified before it was shipped to me. As a result, I could not use it throughout my trip. I'm very disappointed.
