I have now had this conversation two or three times recenlty, so I thought I would post it here as well.

It's a recipe for free eggs ( all rather eggs, you wouldn't have had !!)

Nice one mate.

We have been doing someting similar the last few years.
Our lights are fixed near the roof, over the perches, no drum.
And it does keep us in fresh eggs through the winter, instead of the barren winters of times past.
I do have to clean out and replenish the indoor feeder over the next few days, as a light coming on at 3am. and the automatic (light sensitive) door not rising until currently almost 7 o clock leads to hungry chooks!
Today they were all roosting by 4.30pm, 20 minutes before the door came down.
Different daylight times may apply. :lol:

"Different daylight times may apply" - indeed. They are in bed by 4pm

The VSD automatic door is brilliant - simple and rebuildable, wouldn't be without it now. Cost a fortune at the time. But is it is not internet connected...... so a complete useless ludite in todays world. Don't know if you can still get them.
