    My 2 month old GC pullets won't go into the coop in the evening unless I put a light in there, and the Foy's automatic door then shuts them out - so I put a 60w fluorescent bulb in there. The light goes on, they go in, and a while later the door shuts. However, they seem to get so excited about the bugs attracted to the light that I think they party all night long - they seem to stay up later than I do. Should I have the timer turn the light off or will they evevntually do to sleep?
