The timers I have don't appear to be capable of meeting my needs for the coop. I want one that will go on around 4 AM, to give a couple extra hours daylight to promote egg-laying. Any recommendations? These are photoelectric timers. Seems I have bought the wrong kind of timer. Help! I look forward to the first egg around Christmas, but probably not until spring if I can't get some light in the coop. My husband has been plugging in the light when he leaves for work at 4, but he gets to sleep in the other 3 days of the week. Hate to think we have to get up to turn on the light those other 3 days. I guess I had thought that it is better to have that extra light in the morning, rather than at night. Is this true? If I could light the coop at night, then the timers would work just fine.
