We've been using extra light in our coop this winter to give our hens about a 14 hour day. It's worked great, lots of eggs still, and we use a timer so we don't have to get up at 3:00 a.m.! We're going to be adding to our flock soon, and I'm wondering how our lighting scheme might affect the new arrivals. The last two times we added to our flock it was in the summer when there was only natural lighting. Everything went smoothly and the new girls settled into their new routine in just a couple of days. I've asked the farm we're buying these new pullets from how much light they're getting currently, and I wonder if they're not on supplemental light, might they be stressed or experience problems adjusting to our lighting schedule?
