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 supplemental chicken coop light and 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.
