1 hen not laying

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a hen the same age as my other hens that are laying daily. She was thin and being bullied at her old home. I have had her over a month and I found two soft shell light colored eggs left in the coop floor not a nest. They free range and I offet them pyster shell. Could she still need time to settle in or possibly have a sickness from her old home? She appears healthy only skittish. My flock are all tame and very friendly.

Yeah, I'd say give her some time. Chickens, like all other animals develop at different rates. I have one pullet that has shown no signs of laying, whilst her sisters have been laying for a few weeks.
