we just got home, so i set them in their little home with lights, food, and water like i have with the rest of my chicks. when i put them in there though they refused to move; they’re just kinda standing there. maybe it’s stress from all the moving? i’m not sure. help

Sounds normal. Chickens don't like change, yours just went through a big change. As long as they are not giving a plaintive peep, a sound that you know means they have a problem, they should be OK. Not sure why this batch would be different from your previous broods but give them a little time.
