So I does anyone use solar Christmas lights as an light source for their birds to increase winter laying? I can't run an extension cord out to my coop, it is too far away to be feasible. Especially because most extension cords are for temporary use. So I started looking at the solar option. Most solar light fixtures available are flood lights that only work on movement, they don't stay on continuously. But, solar Christmas lights are meant to stay on for at least a few hours after sunset. At the hardware store I saw a rather inexpensive white solar Christmas lights for outdoor use, they turn on at sunset and off at dawn. Given the weak sunlight at this time of year, I bet they won't last the night, but will give the chooks that additional boost of light they need to lay. So should I go for it and jazz up my coop's windows with Christmas lights?
