While I don't use a heat lamp, I do have lights on a timer to add three hours to the length of the day. It helps with egg production. Right now my birds are just getting through their molt, which was HEAVY this year. Like others, it looked like my chickens should have been stark naked with all the feathers in the run.
I had a major disappointment when my beloved blue cochin, that I raised from a tiny chick, started to CROW!! He now lives at a friends house to play with all of her australorp hens. I miss him.......
