200 year-old house on 25 rocky acres in high country upstate NY and SO many highbush blueberries!

These two lightbulbs are Sylvania Double Life bulbs and they each lasted a day. These two are bulb numbers 4 and 5. The first 3 were GE cheap bulbs; my last Sylvania Double Life bulb is in the socket now.
I have no idea why the bulbs are failing so quickly. I eliminated the timer and the extension cord as suspects. The two suspects left are the cord and socket or ... the chickens. They can indeed reach this light and either hit it inadvertently in transit somewhere or hit it advertenly (must be the opposite of inadvertently, right?, and mean on purpose?)
Do chickens do that? Murder light bulbs?? Those murderous beasts! Sentence is to lay eggs, almost daily for the rest of their lives.
