So after getting rid of my RIR I got 3 3wk old orpingtons and one 5wk old sussex. They spent a week in a separate coop. I have added them to the henhouse in a cage bc it is too cold for them without a heat lamp. My adults still will not go in henhouse without some coaxing. But what I find weird is they will lay in the henhouse, go in and out all day. But will not nest in there over night. Will my coaxng eventually show them the sign to go in at night?

I would keep putting them inside at night, they should eventually go in on their own again, especially since they are laying in there.
