I was thinking that I would lock the ladies into their new henhouse for a 2-3 days - not let them out into the yard - in order to get them used to it, and comfortable with it.
Is this a good idea? Will I still have to catch them and put them in the house at night? For how long?
What other methods can you recommend to get them to use the new building?
ps: this is of course providing that the weather cooperates. I would not keep them locked in if it is too hot...
