I got rid of an aggressive rooster and now my hens won't come inside. Some will sometimes, other times no one will come in. I recently got a little silkie rooster and he comes inside at night but not the hens. Is there a way to fix this?

Mostly penned. Occasionally they are free to roam the yard but they find their way back into the pen, but not the coop.

I woudl keep them in the coop for a couple days. Something scared them to make them not want to go in there. By keeping them in a couple days they will learn its their safe place again.
