Some more light bulbs for those who would rather use tubular fluorescent fixtures.

The hens under the 2700k light didn't start laying until almost 9 weeks. They came from same gene pool. Only difference in their setup was the light temperature.
I couldn't afford to buy that many of the full spectrum ccfl when I found them.

Do you know where I can get full spectrum at 6300k light?

I can not find it at local store

I just need extra light from 5pm to 11 pm.

What Watt is ideal for a 8'x8'shed? There's alot of talk about Kelvin and spectrum but not Watt.

Those of you that say the quails don't need extra heat/ have boxes. I'd really like to see your builds, as I'm about to start building soon. Please and ty.
