I've just joined the site (hi all!) and would love some advice and pearls of wisdom from you experienced chicken owners! We have just inherited two gorgeous girls-Plymouth Barred Rocks- who are 2 years old. My friend, their owner, is travelling overseas for a year and we are the lucky new foster parents! We moved their entire setup here (coop and run) 5 days ago and since then neither have laid.They are having plenty of free roaming time and lots of yummy food scraps and seem very happy! I imagine they are simply settling into their new rhythm and will come right soon- but my children are desperate to discover an egg in the morning when they run out to check.. and have, thus far, been disappointed! My friend said that, on average , each chicken lays about 5 eggs per week. I believe one of the girls was/is broody and hadn't laid for about a week prior to coming to us. My question is: How long should we expect no eggs for? Thanks!
