    Got 4 chickens, one lays almost everyday , two are still young , the other one was laying at previous home . How long does it take for the chickens to get adapted to new home to start laying again? I have had them for a week now
    Thanks

    It took ours a couple weeks before they started the convoluted laying pattern they have now.

    I have had some a month and they till aren't laying. I am thinking of making them stew.

    I've had some new black hens for 4 to 6 weeks now and they are just now starting to lay sporatically.

    You have to remember, the heat from the summer slowed down their laying, tis the season for molting which also slows them down, and the stress wont ease overnight.

    Well I feel lucky then to be getting any!!!!!
    I go out and check about three times a day and am thrilled when the Golden Sexlink has laid one. I only have three eggs for Sunday breakfast. There were 4 but I couldn't resist:D
