My girls are 4 months old and they're coop finally got built. Problem is, they are used to roosting at night in my shed. How can I get them to move into the new chicken tractor?

Lock them in their new location for about a week. When you start letting them out again do so in the later evening hours, an hour or two before dusk. If they try to go back to the old location, repeat steps one and two.

lock them in there for two to three weeks that is what i do. seems cruel but it works. a week can do but like the person in the other post said you might have to repeat. two weeks will almost guarantee its
