OK so we installed our heat lamp, connecting it through a temperature sensitive outlet that makes it turn on when the temperature dips below 35 degrees F. It worked let night!! However, it woke up the girls (we think - this morning we found a starling in the coop). We wonder if the heat lamp (the same one we used 24/7 when they were chicks) woke them or the starling. We like the idea of using the heat lamp but not if we have to get up in the middle of the night to turn it off because the girls are clucking away. ! : ) On another note, we went to Westlake Hardware here in Columbia, MO and bought a remote light switch. Now when we get up in the morning, we just hit the switch and the light in the coop comes on (different light). How cool is that!!! Now we just have to come up with an automatic door opener and life will be very very good indeed.
