    Nothing like 250 watts to get them "sun bathing" on the coop floor!

    Rain got to my power, shorted out the light fixture. Fixed the issue and replaced it, the one I had on hand is 250 watt, stronger than the 75 I was using. Need it for laying light, not heat just yet. But I didn't want to skip a day since I just got my first egg!

    After getting everything situated, I stuck my head in there and 2 of them were laid out, spread wing and a leg sticking out, as if it wasn't cold and rainy! They're so cute!

    Now I need to get another fixture for lower wattage bulbs, this other one only does 250 watt bulbs.
