I am interested in the plan for the portable chicken coop for 4-6 medium sized birds. However, I live in new england and would like to safely heat the upstairs where they roost and lay eggs. I do not have room for a full size barnyard barn ...only the portable coop. For that size space would you recommend a light on a timer with a 15 watt bulb to help with some heat (not cooking them due to the small space) and extending the daylight for egg laying?

Thank you for your Question. When you said the portable chicken coop, did you mean the Chicken Tractor? Or the Chicken Ark? As far as which bulb to use, I think you might consider a higher watt bulb for heating. It gets pretty cold in New England in the winter time. Some people use brooder bulbs, some people use higher watt bulbs outside the hen house just to keep the coop heated but dark enough for them to sleep. This is why we like the brooder and brooder bulb option. Extending the light for egg laying is a different concern and should be addressed separately, perhaps with a 15 watt bulb and timer as you mentioned (so an extension cord and surge protector with a few outlets might work). Hope that helps... we can keep brainstorming ideas that will work for you... just let us know. Thank you for your interest in DIY Chicken Coops!!!
