When we recently moved IWhen we recently moved I adopted two bantam hens, coop and all. They are about 5 years old. They had been using nothing but straw for their coop and nesting area all their lives. The urban farm store around here convinced me to try special, non-dusty pine shavings made specially for hens. I cleaned the coop thoroughly and replaced all the straw with the shavings. They are extremely suspicious of the new digs. They don't even want to go in there. Any suggestions?
