We had to re-home a rooster this week and ever since, our hens won't leave the coop! We used to get two eggs a day in the nest box, now we are getting one a day on the ground of the run. I haven't even seen them come out to eat! Will this pass?

It's normal. Usually a hen will take lead and take the flock outside but it may take a few weeks for them to adjust.
