I'm hoping some one can settle a concern I have about my girls and going into the coop at night. My 6 girls have been in their new coop and run for 3 nights (counting tonight). Each night when I go to check on them before I go to bed, I find them all huddled on the poop plank just outside the poop hole. So far, I have had to pick each one up and put them on the roost before I close them up for the night. From what I read, Chickens are night blind. I'm thinking they get on the poop plank right before it gets dark and are afraid to go into the coop and roost because they cannot see to get to the roost. DH husband is in the process of running electricity to the coop and we should have power by the end of the weekend. Do I need run a night light out to the coop until I can get the timer/lighting system installed to insure the girls can see to get to their roost at night fall? I don't mind putting my girls to bed, I'm just concerned they are afraid of the dark or am I being silly?
