They will when they're ready; they're still youngsters. Just don't let them sleep in the nest boxes. Lots of folks have to block them off when the chicks are that young so they learn that's not a place to sleep.

i was afraid of them sleeping in the nest boxes, so i put chicken wire on those for now. they work well for storing food until there ready to lay! thank you for the info
