    So I was just out fixing one of the lights in my one coop and I tried to put a new light bulb in and I all the sudden twitch really hard and I was thinking did I just get shocked? so I figured since I forgot to turn the brooder lamp switch off that is the reason I got shocked. So I go to do it a second time and again I all the sudden twitch even harder so I got so freaked out I decided that the third time is not the charm. What do you think happen though if the light switch was off and yet I got shocked?

    So are you saying that you got shocked even with the light off or are you asking if you would have been shocked if the light had been off?

    If the light was off and you got shocked, then that's bizarre. If you had the light off in the first place, I don't think you would have been shocked.

    110 has a good zap to it. I've been shocked many times.

    I am sorry, I just pictured the Pink Panther getting shocked and all you can see is his skeleton!

    I can't tell you what probably happened, but you made me laugh. Leave it along til your other half gets home....

    Turn it off at the breaker switch.

    Maybe you have a short somewhere. I'd get it checked out.
