    Hi Everyone.
    I am new to the forum and new to raising chickens. I just got done setting up my new coop for my chicks and read a lot about motion sensor lights and that night time predictors dont like them. So I figured maybe this will help deter any night time animals looking for a meal. I bought this small led light from Home depot for $12.00 its solar powered and use 3m sticky tape. It is pretty bright. It says it will last up tp 5 years. For $12.00 its certainly worth a shot. Hope this help. Thanks.[​IMG][/IMG]

    Welcome! Predators won't be deterred for long by a light, but if you like to be able to have it come on when you go out there, or to see visitors, go for it. Mine never lasted as long as advertised, but it's cheap. The best protection is a predator proof coop and run! Mary
