    hey guys, i have 2 hens, but only 1 has been laying for the past few months since i bought them. one hen, i think looks stressed all the time. i think she misses her old home. but this morning, 9/10:00am i found one egg, which is of course from the happy hen. but then at about 4 to about 5pm, i found another egg. will this be from the stressed hen? or the happy hen?

    You now have both hens laying. One may have been molting which will give them a stressed look even if it is a mild molt. A process anywhere from 2wks to 2 months duration during which time most do not lay or eggs are reduced.
