    Thanks for the info on getten the gals to come in at dusk, it works great to give them just a 25 watt light in the coop by the roost and they all go in at dusk and start finding there spot on the roost . they are 6 - 8 weeks . All are using roost .

    You probably don't need that light much longer unless you really want it...after a few days they should do it regardless! Little creatures of habit!
