    We just got our first chickens yesterday. We got 2 GLW , 2 RIR, and 2 Araucana's. They are all 3 month old pullets and seem to get along just fine. My question is, will they all go to roost in the coop or am I going to have to take them in in the evenings for a while?

    You will probably have to shut them in for awhile so they get to know this is home!

    I locked mine in the coop for 5 days with food and water. Never had to show them where to go after that.
