New to backyard chickens and raising a flock but having fun so far
When should you shut off the extra lights after dusk to help your chicks get rested and happy to lay?

If you supplement light in your coop during winter months, you'll want the light to come on early in the morning and off when the sun comes up. Your lights should not be on after sunset because the birds are naturally going to roost.
