I started my chicken flock this summer, and noted that the chickens put themselves to bed in the coop right around sunset and were noisily demanding to get let out shortly after sunrise. Now that the days are getting shorter, they still follow that pattern. I assume they'll do the same in the winter. But what I wonder is... do they sleep more in the winter? Or do they just hang out in the coop for a few hours until they get tired? Does anyone know? Also, I'd like to get eggs throughout the winter, so I've read that I need to put a coop light on to simulate at least 14 hours of daylight. So here's the question - do I put the light on in the run so they can stay out later? (like a floodlight) Or just a light in the coop so they'll go in when it's dark out, but it will be light in the coop? Thanks!
