    They are over a 1 1/2. Orpingtons I guess is the correct name.

    How long have you had them? If you only got them recently it could be the stress of moving that stopped their laying, but it'll only be for awhile.
    Are they showing signs of molting?

    Do you think they are still stressed?

    They may still be getting used to the new environment. Are they losing lots of feathers?
