Hi, I'm a complete novice at having chickens, our chicks arrive next week, YAY! Anyway our coop location is still under discussion with my husband and I . Where he wants it there is only maybe 2 hours of sunlight early in the day and then is heavily shaded by trees the rest of the day. The chickens may roam around our yard on occasion if I'm out with them but otherwise they will mostly be in their shaded run. Is being outside with ambient light enough or do the chickens need to have direct sun? We live in Massachusetts and in the winter without the tree canopy they will have much more sun. But for the summer it is limited.
