Well, today I decided that I was going to put a light in the chicken coop. My pullets are just starting to lay just as the days are getting shorter. I got a timer but foolishly forgot to make sure the light itself was turned on. When I went up to close the chicken door of the coop, I turned the light on. The girls are wondering what the heck happened to their night time. It is set to go off any minute now and come back on at 5 a.m. If anyone had told me a year ago that I would keep a light on for chickens there's no way I would have believed them!
