    Where should the light be at in a coop. Should it be over the nests or in the middle of the coop or where???? Coop is 5ftx14ft.
    Thanks

    Put it in the middle of the coop high enough that the chickens can't hit it if they get rambunctious.

    DEad center as high as possible. I use two 48" dual flourescent shop lights in my 8x16. Do shade the nest boxes. They do better in low light in nest boxes.
