Think this light is going to bother them?

    Tonight I bought a LED touch light for one of my coops, to use when I go out there after dark. I was tired of forgetting the flashlight and having to walk all the way back up to the house for it.
    I didn't realize it until I got the light home and put batteries in it, but it has a flashing red light in the center of it - to make it easier to find in the dark.
    Reckon this flashing red light is going to bother my chickens at night? Spook them or whatever. It will be placed fairly high above their heads, at a height of 6 ft. or so.

    If it's red, it won't bother them. They close their eyes and sleep like babies.
