I stopped at my local feed store today to talk to the "chicken girl" about my hens' feather-picking and cannabilistic behaviors. She suggested I use an infared red light 24/7, which would also help with heat during this cold snap we've been in for weeks. My question is: Do I still need to have a regular light to give the hens extra daylight or will the red light take care of that, too? (I would call the feed store, but it's a busy one and I don't know the girl's name. She lives with her parents on a chicken farm and always gives great advice.) Thank you. I searched the forums for an answer and didn't see this exact topic addressed.
