Daylight is starting to fade here in the PNW so I'm thinking about lighting the coop. Who does what? I'm contemplating hanging white Christmas lights and putting them on a timer.
What kind of chickens do you have in Alaska. They must be some hardy birds!!!kahiltna_flock said:I light my coop, I live in Alaska and our days are much shorter in the winter....like only 4 or 5 hrs. I feel that if I feel better with lights they will feel better with lights
You guys can keep it! We have had a very rainy spring & summer here. It has drove me up the wall... The garden was a mess, weeds all over and you go in to get them ... and sink up to your knees... lolSolar lights! Another good idea I will try! I also had to smile at the "sometimes dreary" PNW comment. I think it's dreary most of the Fall and Winter but I personally love it. Nothing better than a rainy day and a cup of joe.
Haha, yeah they are really hearty. I have all kinds. Cochin, jersey giant, welsummer, white leghorn, Wyandotte, Easter eggers, frizzles, americauna, Rhode Island Red, I think that about covers it. Oh and a buff orp roo that I need to find a home for. You would think they would stay in the coop when it's cold out, but they don't. Still go out and run around at -20.mcchicken said:What kind of chickens do you have in Alaska. They must be some hardy birds!!!
