I've kept my hens inside for a week and finally the time has come for them to venture out, they won't go very far past their home though, this is totally normal right? Thanks :)

Very normal. Each time I have done that, it will take them a week to a month to really get adventurous. (after that, they will go almost anywhere, including the road.)

Remember chickens are prey animals. They're showing very good survival instincts to not roam all over right away, they don't know the area is safe! They'll spread out as they gain confidence in their surroundings.
