my leave them alone, the worse that has happened is that they occasionally like to try to perch on them and unplug the light that is hooked to it. they tend to like to use it as a swing. since then have had to tack it up

i live in anchorage and also have a 90 watt outdoor flood light that is on a thermostat set to about 35 degrees. it adds some heat, and the ladies take turns sunning themselves. does not add much heat though. coop stays about 20 degrees warmer than outside temp. brooder lamps dont work for long, as its too cold and bulbs burn out in about two days
