    My two girls (an arucana and a silver seabright) are housed somewhere where i cant bring electricity to them, and im having the darndest time figuring out how to give them the 15 plus hours of light required for eggs [​IMG] We only get about 11-12 hours at this point.

    Any thoughts?

    Solar walkway lights - possibly set outside a window so they will shine in?

    You can go solar, but make sure you get a good one...they are kinda weak if you get the cheap ones.
