I strung the string lights and put them on a Christmas tree timer. We'll see how well it works - I have it set to go on 5am off 7am, then on 4 pm off 7 pm and hopefully that will be enough time for egg making purposes. I made a few other changes - reclaimed my storage area since I don't have any babies to brood and changed the layers to layer feed - I've put pellet Layena w/Omega 3 in the large feed container and raised it high enough so the babies hopefully can't get into it. I put the oyster shell bag in the coop and cut a big hole in it for easy access. It looks like Christmas in there The rooster likes the mood lighting - he's already made his move on my layer.
