"natural light" in the garage?

  1. I'm going to be moving the brooder into the garage in a week or so, but my concern is that there's not much natural light in the garage. Right now they are in a room that gets sunlight in the morning and it's very nice. I don't use a heat lamp, I use a ceramic heat emitter (used with reptiles) that gives off heat but no light. Do you think I should use a plant light to give them some fake sunshine, or just go with a regular lightbulb? I'd move them to the coop so they could have fresh air and sunshine, but it's not quite done.
