Hi, I always thought chicken will no come out after the sun goes down? Wrong! as the nights are drawing in i get home just as its getting dark. I have 7 Chickens in a 14ft by 7ft shed and always let them out when i get home but the days are getting shorter and i open the shed door they come running out. I stay out there with them standing infront of the security light so they can see and they are not bothered at all thats its dark. I am in the process of getting a run attached so they can be out all day and then when i get home they can run around the garden but they never go in on their own i have to put them to bed. the shed door does have mesh on them so they do get day light and fresh air. They were previously in a smaller chicken house with a run but my shed was just sitting theer with junk in it so i decided to make it their new home.
