Circadian rhythm of chickens

reporting on how much better a digital timer is over a mechanical one when freezing conditions exist

We’ve tried 3 different types
of mechanical timers for the
chicken coop light
all three have had issues of not working right during temperatures that
get close to freezing.

One solution might be to
build a little insulated box to put it in, but it still might get too
cold inside.

The above digital timer is
easy to program and has not failed even once since we’ve installed it.
It will cost 2 to 3 times what a mechanical timer can be found for, but
is well worth it if your chicken’s circadian rhythm stays intact.
