We have a loft hen house with a run underneath. The hens also get to free roam a couple of times a week. The 2 new welsummers are extremely submissive. After the whole noise fiasco on Sunday morning we put them back into the house, with the door open to the run. The other three hens were wandering around the garden. One if the newbies came down a couple of times and even ventured into the garden briefly until an aracauna walked near her( minding her own business) and the newbie went running back in and up to the house. The other girl has not ventured out and we have put a bit of food and water in and she us definitely taking both. So my question is do we leave them to find their own feet or should we just take them out of the hen house and place them in the run? The araucanas took two days to leave the house at first, our rir settled in straight away. These girls were put in the house on Thursday night and still seem terrified! I am happy they are eating and drinking but would have thought they would be more settled by now. Any advice?
