    We were just given yesterday 4 barred rocks by a friend to add to our 7 rocks. My question is it is so hot and the new girls are not leaving the coop to go into the shade bushes nearbye, should I just leave them or maybe push out , but might have to chase them later to get them back in the coop, what do you guys think? I dont want them to have heat stroke or anything like that.

    Quarrantine those new girls! 30 days!
    They shouldn't be sharing anything with your existing flock - don't put both flock's health at risk, just because it's hot out.
    Good luck.
