I just read something that suggested that you put the light in one of those bulb safety things for when you are working on your car - so the bulb is behind a sort of cage. And then you keep the bulb low to the ground - that way if it attracts bugs, your chickens can eat the bugs!

Did you know you can train your chickens not to cluck? I live in the city where clucking is frowned upon. When a group of new chickens begins to lay and announce it by Bakaw-ing we run out and lightly spray 'em with the hose. In no time at all the announcements stop and they lay eggs without all the noise for the rest of their lives. Before anyone shouts chicken abuse - red spots in egg whites are a sign of trauma or fright to a chicken. There are none in the eggs of our chickens in training.
