There's nothing wrong with providing a little night light for the chickens. It helps to instill self confidence in young pullets such as yours, making them feel calm and safe in their coop. But since the coop is so small, if the light is within reach of the chickens, go with something large enough they won't mistake it (mini-holiday lights may be too tiny and swallow-size) for something to eat. I like those plug-in LED lights.
Thanks, Great idea. I added a light in their coop and I think they really like it. Not a bright one just a small dim one.😄
