    Dh just finished rebuilding the henhouse section on our chicken tractor. Is there anything special I should do to teach them that it is home. They free-range most of the day and were out today when he switched them. I left the old henhouse next to it so they can go in there tonight if they get confused and then I can move them to the new house. Is there anything else I can do?

    I think what you're doing is about all you can do to get them used to their new digs. I think they'll figure out pretty quick that the new henhouse is home now.
