I know this is Geneology site but I thought i would see if anyone could answer this question......

My 3, 17 week old chicks wouldnt go into the henhouse last night instead they huddled to gether under it (all enclosed for safety) should i place them in it tonight to show them where they will sleep or wait for them to find their own way..

Thanks Anita xx

Check for rats, they really unsettle the birds and if they don't feel safe they won't go in. Elaine.
