    I am sooo eggcited!!! The back yard is pitch black at night and the motion light does go on if something is in front of the coop doors.A while back,I had asked DH how difficult it would be to put some lights up and a switch inside the house??

    I'm waiting on an electrician to give me an estimate to do something similar in my backyard at present... only my flood lights would go on top of the feed shed next to the coop, over looking the garden... hey, I could do weeding at night that way.

    Congrats on the upgrade.

    We have to get a pole electrician in to hook up our chicken house next year... actually, by then it won't be a chicken barn anymore LOL but my goat barn and the chickens moved to a chicken trailer.
