    You might like to do it early in the day so you can check on them often and so they have time to adjust and discover where to roost.

    I moved my girls in the morning so I could watch them. The first 2 nights I had to catch them to put in the coop. After a week they are doing it all by themselves. Try adding some light after dusk to the inside of the coop. I used a small battery operated one.
