I know that most people only have a heat lamp or 100 watt bulb in the coop for winter when it is very cold but I am wondering if just a simple, low wattage RED bulb would be ok in the coop for a source of low light in the coop at night? My 5 week olds are not roosting yet and they either don't go into the coop at night by themselves or they all crowd around the windows in the door when we turn the light off.

Basically I am just asking if anyone has a light on in the coop all the time?
