One Last CFL

After the final household inventory, I discovered that the chicken condo had a standard small floodlight bulb. Since I run this 24/7 in the cold weather, I quickly made a swap. And I do mean quickly. The subzero temps and three curious hens huddled to observe the switch over makes one work rapidly. The bulb is running mostly for heat. Some light comes in through the Plexiglas door.

We don't give our chickens a light in the winter --- no real reason except that it's a pain to run an extension cord to movable chicken tractors and I figure they can use a bit of down time in the winter. But if we did, I might stick to an incandescent bulb --- the lower efficiency turns into heat, and they can use it during bitter days like today! Just my two cents worth, though. :-)
