    My chickens for some reason rather roost on my back porch at night than in their coop [​IMG]

    Does porch light count as extending light?

    I've noticed about two times now that one or two of my birds will start sleeping on my back porch if I leave the curtains open. I guess light has a lot to do with where they think they are...
