I moved the coop in my big run last weekend and mine were the same.  The slightest change to their routine and they go all horror struck on you  ::)

What works for my lot is a torch in the coop around bedtime.   I retrieve it after they have settled down.  It only took a couple of days and they have forgotten what ever their little feather brains were bothered by  :)
