    My 8 week old chicks love their solar light that I put in their coop. I checked on them the other night and they all were laying down around it. Cheap way too give them a little light. Thanks too a suggestion on this forum it makes my chicks happy

    Glad you posted this... I love my solar fence... maybe I can add solar lighting to my barn as well... (my coop is a converted stall)... the horses are awesome at protecting the chicks.

    Believe it or not I think the solar light helped the plants in my plant bed this year. I have this old bathtub I fill with dirt and then I cover it with a window to grow tomatoe plants and pepper, One night I noticed that some 4th of July solar lights I had under my building were glowing so I bought them out and put them up next to the chicken run just for fun. This tub was right next to the lights and after I put them there the plants started growing much better. I wondered if just the added light helped them.
