    I got 2 young r i reds and put them in with my hens that are about 2 months older. the reds still after 3 days will not go into the henhouse with the other girls. how long will it take them to sleep where its warm and cozy? there is enogh room for all in the house (theirs not mine) [​IMG] emmylou42

    Put them on the roost each night with the others, eventually they'll get the drift.

    Make certain that they aren't being picked on by the others.
