I just introduced my 15 chicks hatched (incubator) about six weeks ago into the chicken run/roost house last night. When I moved them after dark I put them in the house but tonight when they came into the run and I locked the door for the night they just huddle in the corner while the rest of the chickens go into the house. Will they figure it out or do I need to move them in for a few nights straight till they get the picture? Also will they learn to use the elevated roosts on their own? The last batch had a momma to help them. These are incubated.
Any input would be appreciated.
