Hello all
I'm new as a member & new to chickens ! We've recently moved into a property with an already built in chicken coup very well built may as say . So we purchased 5 Australorps & 3 Isa Browns not pure breeds I think & all were already together when we purchased them . When we brought them over a month ago the lady told us to give them a couple of weeks to settle & they should start laying .
Well only one of the Australorps lays daily but nothing from the others as yet . Any ideas anyone would be great . They all look happy & healthy so not sure 😳😊 thanks 🐔🐔

They'll start ovulating again when they feel at home.

ChickenCanoe is correct. The chickens need to feel at home to start laying again, BUT do you know how od they are?  Sometimes people get rid of their older stock, maybe three or so for a dollar a bird or they will sell their poor or non layers.  Hopefully that isn't your case.

We purchased from a reputable place that breed & sell , defiantly not old they are young stock for sure and were all in a sale pen together . I'm hoping it's just a maturity thing & they are just not quite ready yet 😳

   Are their combs red?  The combs on a pullet will turn from pink to red before she begins to lay.  I've had pullets start to lay anywhere between four months five days and well over 8 months so the age can vary.
