Since we're talking about laying eggs. I've bought 2 Barred Rock hens a week ago, they are around 9 months old. One of them gives me an egg almost everyday since I got her, but the second one (which is considerably smaller then the first) has not laid an egg yet. The lady we bought the chickens from had so many she didn't know who was laying. I'm thinking maybe it's the stress from the move...but would it be possible that the second hen hasn't started laying yet? Do some hens not lay eggs at all? I've heard her do a little egg song, got all excited...just to realize it was false hope. Could it be that she's pumping herself up to start laying? Or a cheerleader for her sister, lol?
It's quite possible that it is the stress from moving. My 2yo hens took three weeks to settle in before they started laying daily.
