I think he's need a passle of them to make enough light to simulate enough daylight to keep the chickens laying in winter... I used a flood lamp type for the ducks... you do have to be careful if you have straw and stuff in there it doesn't overheat and start to burn.
Maybe even grow light flood lamp types would work...

Not sure what happened to earlier post, but nothing hit the fan, in fact 6 eggs out of seven chickens today. All I have to do now is find out who's the slacker!

My chicken friends on the chicken forum said coat their Vents with different color lipstick to determine who laid what eggs! Hope Mary didn't mind me borrowing here lipsticks.

Just keep this in mind if Mary wants to give you a big smack next time we see you. Especially if she's wearing bright colored lipstick!

Oh gee...give her a few more days before she gets stewed...moving is stressful, and she just may be themost attentive and best mama hen you get out of your bunch. She may be your broody hen.

O K, but times a ticking!

Should have seen my near 2 yo GD throwing scratch out to the hens tonight. In seconds all seven was at her feet. She's a natural farm girl. Her dads had her on cows backs and today mom and dad went to look at a pony! A blue eyed blond and tough as nails!
