My 4 new pullets keep trying to go in the coop at night but my 3 older hens wont let them and force them out so they end up perchingin a tree. Im worried racoons will get to them because thats how mt last 3 chickens died. What should I do?

I had some smaller girls a few years ago this happened to. I went out nightly and put them back in. Some nights multiple times, and ultimately started locking the whole flock in at night. The girls finally all got along and no more issues were had. The only time I have had issues with doing this is when I had two roosters... For that I recommend making a second house and give second roo his own ladies.
