Under the Lights
As the weather turns colder we keep working on all the things that need to be done before winter hits hard. One of those things is to put some lights under the chicken coops. Lights? you ask? read and follow along. During the winter when the snow is flying and the wind is howling the chickens and ducks do not go and roam the yard. The wind does bite, to the tune of 30 below zero wind chill as recorded on our weather station. So needless to say they do not go out in the cold and wind and will stay under the coops. But for them to lay they need 14 hours of “daylight” per day! So to help with this we installed some outdoor string lights under the coops. With three sides closed in to give them some shelter from the wind it was very dark under there. So now even if they spend the day under there they will still get their “sunlight” for the day!
