I have a few questions if someone could help me out? We have four hens in our little back yard flock. We love them like our cat and dogs....Im having a problem with these little lady's waking up and crowing around 4-5 am wanting out of the coop. Then if I do let them out they are and will crow non stop until it is light out. Im concerned for them, and for my neighbors. As far as I know we are the only ones in the neighborhood with chickens, and it is legal. Does anyone have any sugestions on what I can do? I have a heat lamp in the coop as it has been cold, but I have also read about a grow light? Would that help? They also will not lay eggs in the coop, they like to lay them under the coop where it is like a extra large nesting box and dark and dry with lots of hay, but that isn't really a problem the way we have it set up. They dont seem to have a problem laying an egg in the coop if it is at night and they are locked up because I have gotten several eggs in the morning there. I think they just prefer it underneith. I guess I just need to try a few diffrent things, and I don't want my neighbors to get upset with us. No one has complained yet either but I hope to keep it that way.
