I'm considering adding a cool-burning LED bulb to my coop to extend daylight hours a bit. This wouldn't be for increased egg production, but rather to give the hens more time to eat and scratch. We only have 8 or 9 hours of daylight here right now, so I thought this might improve their overall well-being. My plan is to set a timer to turn the light on at 5 or 6 in the a.m., and off again at 8 a.m., extending their day by about 2 hours. That said, I'd really like to hear from folks who don't advocate this course. Tell me why I shouldn't artificially extend daylight hours, and how it might adversely affect my flock. Thanks, A.R.
