I put my 2 month old girls into there new coop and there just staying in one area under the coop and only come out once in a while any ideas how to get them to move around

How long ago did you move them into the new area?  At 2 months they are still young and, as such, can take even longer than a mature bird to adapt to new surroundings.  If you post some photos of the coop and surrounding area we can help you identify any potential perceived threats that may be contributing to their general sense of insecurity.

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?
