Beautiful hens!

 

They look like adults to me, probably they aren't laying because of the stress. Give them some time and they should start up soon. Some fake eggs in the nest boxes should help encourage it. :)

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

"Generally nesting boxes are closed off to young birds - because they learn to sleep in them and later  will poo all over the eggs.  They either learn to roost or you have to put them on the roost each night when they are locked up in the coop for the evening."

So do you mean when we move our chicks from the brooder to their coop we should block off the nesting boxes until they are old enough to lay and just have the perches available inside the coop?
