I'm BRAND NEW to BYC and chicken raising. We got our layer chicks July 23rd this year and are wondering about the "How-TOs" of artificial lighting & heating in hopes that they will begin laying this winter. We live in Connecticut and there are fewer daylight hours every day at this time of year. What is the best way to artificially light our 12 chicken coop? (ie: how many hours after dusk,how many before dawn?). Also, what is an ideal temperature for our coop? We have electricity run out there and would like to keep them comfortable, but not toasty warm. I purposely bought cold-hardy breeds (5 Plymouth Rocks, 1 Australorp, 2 silkies, 1 Orpington, 4 Easter Eggers) but would still like to provide some warmth in the colder days & nights. Thanks!
