Someone on here has a website, Confederate Money Farms, where they show how to make a pet heater out of a PVC pipe and Christmas lights. I think this is a genius idea and got to wondering if it would be feesible to make these up and use as perches. In the winter time, I would turn them on in the evening and the perches would be nice and warm under the chickens feet. I am thinking this would be a fabulous way to help the chickens stay warm on cold winter nights without resorting to heating the whole coop. Since they use Christmas lights, they could all be plugged in together with just one cord having to go to an electric outlet. Has anyone done this? We are going to be starting our coop within the next week or two and I want to make sure I get everything I want and need in this coop as it will most likely be my last. I've never heard anyone discuss this, but I think it might be worth trying. Any cons you can think of? I think the chickens would really enjoy it. The video says to rough up the PVC with sand paper so it isn't slippery, but I was thinking of putting some of those non slip strips you put on the end of deck steps so they could grip it easily. It would be very cleanable that way as well. Thank you to the folks at Confederate Money Farms for posting this how to. I also enjoy watching your hatching cams. Haven't caught your pugs yet, but I am hopeful. I have two pugs myself and they are a hoot. We call them the Naughty Boys because they are!
