I know there is a lot of people on this forum that work during the day. I get home about 5:30 and I immediately let my girls out of the coop for a few hours of freedom. I cant let them free-range without me being there due to the hawks in the area. When the time changes next month it will be dark, and they will be in bed when I get home. I already feel guilty about them being cooped up all day. They have the run of course, but thats not the same as real freedom! They will only have freedom on the weekends. I guess well all have to adjust!
