    Hello and welcome to BYC.[​IMG] It's new to them and they will get use to their new home. A night light may help. Don't worry, it won't take long for them to adjust.[​IMG]

    Quote:I'm so happy it worked out! My first 3 chicks freaked out the first time I put them in the coop. I only had them in there for a couple hours and when I brought them back in, they were crazy loud for over an hour![​IMG]. I even had a light on for them. Thankfully it doesn't take long for them to adjust.
