    My coop has large windows, just outside the coop in the chicken run is my Bunny's hutch. Over his hutch is a motion sensor light with two amber colored bulbs. Mr Buns has figured out how to make the light go on & He makes it come on several times during the night.
    It sort of shines indirectly in the coop window. I'm not sure if it disturbs the girls, do you think it would?

    It might wake them up. Chickens react to light so it might be bothersome to them. Is there a way you can tack a blanket or something over that window at night? You'd have the added benefit of some extra insulation, too.
