hello lads
i have 3 young hens that are hatching. but i want to move them out of the laying area and in to my hatching pens. i normaly just move them in to a box in the pen lock them in to it over night and in the morning that stay ther. bt with theys hens i can move them put them in the box, lock them in the box over night and they will stay ther for a day or maby 2 but then they will get up and go back to laying area.
any ideas on how to get them to stay in the nests??

Quote:Can you lock them in there for a couple more days? I know if I move any of my chickens I need to keep them locked up for a week so they know where to go back to.
