Spelunking with chickens

head lamp for chickens at night

The easy way to catch a chicken is to wait till it gets dark and pick them up off their roost.

We each got spelunking head lamps back when our power went out for 2 weeks, and quickly discovered how awesome a head mounted light source can be.

My advice is to pay a little extra for the higher end model that allows you to adjust the angle where the light shines.

Have you tried one of the LED models? The batteries last a lot longer but the light isn't quite as white.

Heath --- These are LED. I wish they were LED and solar, but I've yet to find a headlamp like that! I usually use may handheld solar LED flashlight, which has already served me well with no maintenance for two or three years.
