Window-less coop. Will you turn on the light for them if they choose to stay in?

It's below freezing and a bit windy today and the chickens aren't wanting to come out of their coop.
Should I leave the light on for them or should I just leave it dark? The only light that will come through would be through their door and vents.

It was an existing window-less structure (shed) that was converted into a coop.

I don't add light either, but in this case I would. I would put it on a timer to resemble the light we are getting now outside.
