A light is not necessary in Winter C&C, they will just go in earlier, sleep longer and come out later. Adding a light can be used to extend the laying period, but I wouldn't recommend it. Chickens need a break from laying for the benefit of their health. Also putting a light on (early morning only) will need a coop large enough for them to move around and eat and drink. In our experience the resulting mess in the coop isn't worth the extra eggs.
