Sun rises here about 7 -- I leave for work @ 6:15 am. Sun sets @ 5:15 -- hens are in the coop by 4:15 and I get home around 4:30-5:00. What do you do? I go out occasionally to be sure they're all in the coop, check the water and put out feed for the next day. But I'm sad not to give them treats except on the weekends.
