I ended up putting a red light in the Big House to add a bit more heat than the heating plate was putting out. Unfortunately, despite being advertised for both brooders & coops, it wasn’t changing the temperature all that much in the Big House. That was okay when it wasn’t blizzard conditions & below zero. The red light is just a regular red flood light, not an actual heat lamp, that puts just enough heat out to make me feel better about leaving tiny Sparta out there in the lowest temps.

A funny side effect from having the red light in there is the glow the Big House gets from the light pouring out of the south side window reflecting off the plastic wrap on the main pen. I kind of want to make a facade for the Big House that looks like Dante’s Inferno Room from Beetlejuice now.
