I've been debating what to do for some outside pen/coop lighting (have a group of ducks who want to sleep on their small pond instead of inside) to try to get my egg production going again. I've been pricing some fancy-smancy (and very expensive) outdoor lights but then I saw the 1/2 off LED Christmas lights and wondered...would they work? I'm thinking about stringing them over the pen like you would in an outdoor patio. It would certainly be prettier than flood lights...and about 1/4 the price. What do you think? Would it make it bright enough for a couple hours in the evening to get the ladies cranking on the eggs again?
