i have 6 hens and a roo (mixed golden and brown). they all hatched out the week before christmas, and have been laying reliably since right at 6 weeks old. but because of weather issues, i didn't get their outside run done until about a month ago. meanwhile they were laying like champs in their rubbermaid tub in the house. I hatched out 24 chicks going on 2 weeks ago. they went to their outside home almost 4 weeks ago, and i've only gotten maybe 8 eggs from them since! how long should i wait to let them adjust? or should i just give up and let the chicks grow up out there and wait for them to start laying? here's their pen/home. the roof sections both lift up for access, and the 'bed' area doubles as dustbath, is a plastic tub set in a frame, raised off the ground (we get LOTS of rain at times). the ramp area are stained cedar shingles that used to be siding on a house but got repurposed.
