    DH got a small solar light that we put in the chicken coop form notherntool.com for $40 and I'm going to get another one to put in front of the storage and pump area for our goats so I can see what I am doing now that the sun is leaving the sky earlier so I don't continue to trip over my own feet!

    It sure saves the trouble of running electric for a couple small lights. He said it was really easy to install.

    This sounds cool! I am going to check it out! Just wondering - how much light does it throw? It seems like the solar landscaping lights they sell at Kmart and places like that don't throw much light.

    How very cool - I've been looking for a solar light for our coop. Does it throw quite a bit of light?

    We estimated it's the equivalent (sP?) of a 20-40 watt light bulb. I can see everything in the coop, count chickens, dodge chicken poo! You know the important stuff.

    Yes, it is the middle one. I haven't tried it for laying yet. It comes with a battery that is suppose to store energy for 10 hours.
