Hi! I am a very new chicken owner from Brisbane, Australia. We brought 3 x 20 week old girls home 3 days ago. We have a pretty modest coop that has a hen house and a fenced off run surrounding it. The girls are completely comfortable with the house but are very hesitant to leave it and enter the run. Should I leave them be or encourage them out? Also should I put their food and water inside their house or leave it outside? I spent a year researching how to care for chickens but never thought to research what to do once you bring them home!
