    I just finished building a new coop for my six chickens, it is larger and more warm and gets them out of the weather. I tryed to get them in to them new coop one at a time but they get scared and run the minute i open the door to go get another chicken. Does anyone know how i can get all of them in the new coop?

    Put them in at night time, and leave them in for a couple days.. That's what i would do

    I'd try catching them at night, and locking them in the new coop for 2-3 days
