    My DH is a Christmas nut! He started planning for Christmas lights on the coop even before he finished building it. He can't wait until the day after Thanksgiving to start stringin'.

    Also if we put lights around the run, will the chickens stay up later, or do they always go to roost once the sun sets?

    My DH and I are really into decorateing for the holidays. Trust me, if it doesnt move....it has lights on it...and we have 5 acres to do! We always get cars going by, slowing down....just to look. Lights on the coop!?? YOU BET!! And a Santa on the roof I think! [​IMG] We start the end of October...hanging lights...they dont come on till the day AFTER Thanksgiving.....but they start going up early....before the cold sets in! We have a 20 x 40 barn, the upstairs is FULL of Christmas deco...yard animations, lights, outdoor tree ornaments...and this year..I have an extra fake tree....going to set it by the new coop! They get presents from Santa too! Guess I better get started on makeing those tiny little stockings! [​IMG]
