    Yeah there was blood spot in the egg, I heard it can be caused by stress. Probably from the move, I hope it goes away soon

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] It takes around 25 hours for an egg to form, so it's possible those eggs were already in progress when the hens got moved. Stress, like moving house does often throw hens off laying for awhile. Just telling you so you know what's going on if they don't continue laying for awhile. Enjoy the site!
