I see lots of posts about IF or WHEN to add lights in the coops, but I'm kinda in another situation I kinda did to myself... The ladies were brooded under a lamp, but as they got older, I just moved the light away but kept it on so I could check on them at night Anyway, they moved into their big-girl house & I moved the light in there till they adjusted. Well, at first I tried moving it away, turning it to the ceiling so it just dimly illuminated the coop, but I swear they acted like I flipped their world upside down! I had a coop full of hysterical screaming ladies!! So I just stopped messing with the light all together. But they've always REFUSED to go in the coop at night, if it's dark inside, but will put themselves to bed if the light's on. First off- I really don't mind leaving the light on. My concern is that it will maybe jack them up since winter's coming around, with them having the constant light at night. They stay out in their run all day 'grazing' (aside from laying & getting drinks & nibbles inside) & only go in about 30min after full dark sets, then they go directly to roost & off to dream land. With winter coming, will it BECOME an issue for them? Or will it just be like every other day? ETA: I forgot to mention they're 6mo RSLs & 7mo RIR.
