    This weekend, I set up an auto timer light to come on two hour before sun-up.
    I let my chickens out to free range around 1-2:00
    Since the early wake up light, the chickens are getting on their
    roost two hours before sun-down. I guess they are trying to teach
    me a lesson.

    i know the sooner i let mine out to free range the sooner they go up. if its late when i get hom to let them out, they stay outside longer than they would otherwise. almost like they/ve just been let out of prison and want to enjoy as much outside as they can
