Chicken Egg Laying In Winter – To Light Or Not To Light

I don’t put a light in my chicken shed for a number of reasons that I talk about.

Some of the PROs:
better egg production during the winter, the light can warm the coop more for the birds

Some of the cons:
Birds are spending extra energy laying and will consume more food which they can’t forage during the winter, possible extra stress, shorter laying lifetime of the chicken as they only lay a certain number of eggs

What do you do and what do you think?
