    I recently (3 days ago) added 10 hens to my flock. They were laying before i bought them. They are not now, and understnad that this is normal. How long should it take them to get back to laying again? Thanks

    Yep, it could take a week. I actually had one that took 11 days. [​IMG]

    Usually three days to a week. But if they haven't molted yet this season they may do that first then start laying. I got some Leghorns last spring that did that. Took about two weeks before I got the first egg.
