No worries - one of the first reactions to a stresser is for hens to shut down production of eggs - and for a chicken being moved (even just to a new coop on the same property) is something that can be a stresser.  How old are your birds?  If they are new laying pullets then chances are better that they will return to production once they have settled down.  If they are 18+ months old and ripe for a molt about now that combined with the move and the shortened hours of daylight this time of year may all add up to few eggs until spring when they return to normal produciton.

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?
