I just purchased 7 new hens, to go with my other 7 hens. I added them to the roost at night, which when I received them, in morning let all out to play, all fine. Problem is only 2 came back in coop at night. In morning I seen some of the remaining not in coop, they were under the spruce trees. Question, will they ever come to the coop with the others? And ate they laying somewhere else and setting. They are red Stars 18 months old. Help, never encountered this before. I cannot reach them in the trees but sll on ground, I think

It is usually a good idea to keep them in the coop for a few days to let them get used to seeing that as the safe place. It doesn't sound like that may be possible since they are already in with an the original group. Give them some time. You may have to physically put them in the coop for awhile. They will come around in a few weeks!
