I recently bought 2 two yr old hens and I can't convince the to come down out of the coop into the run? For 2 weeks now they just hang out inside! They seem happy enough and lay daily but wouldn't some fresh air do them good? 1 came out the first day and then went up and never came back out! Any ideas?

you could put there food and water out side and they will figure out to go outside to get fed,before you know it the'll be out all the time right now every thing they need is right there and they feel safe so by removing the access to all their comforts they will have a reason to be out and they will be more confident being out.
