    I don't have that issue now but I did. Do they have a coop. If not, you should buy one soon. If so, you can put their food and water in it. Keep them in the coop for a couple of weeks to a couple of months. Let them know that it is their home. Always feed them in it. Make the nesting boxes cozy and inviting. Have fun and make them feel welcome. hope this helps.
