Hi, I'm finishing up my coop, but already looking towards another delightful New England winter. (That's sarcasm right there). I know chickens need light to keep laying, and mine should start laying right around October, just in time for the time change. I can squeeze the tops of solar walkway lights in my window, and they work to light it up. So I have two questions: 1. Will these work to provide the right kind of light to keep them laying? 2. Since these don't shut off, will the chickens go insane from too much light? This is a cool idea, but I'm not married to it if it won't work. The light in the window.
