To Finish Is To Win

We just our new coop and run finished and we moved our gals and guy over there this afternoon. Now that it's dark, they're having a hard time adjusting. I already dismantled the Chick-N-Barn so moving them back is not an option.

4 hens keep pacing, trying to get back to their old run while the rooster and two other hens are trying to squeeze into 1 nest box (not easy when the roo is a cochin!)

Need advice!!!

I finally got them all in. I took daughter inside and gave her a bath, now that she's in warm jammies and watching TV, I went back outside and saw that 3 hens are on perches, 2 in the nest box, and the roo and one other hen are snuggled together in the straw. Aww....

PamperedPullet, will it work if they are sleeping? Will their toes perch properly?
