    I brought home 3 laying hens this week. From the three hens I have found 4 eggs since Wednesday. Is this a normal frequency?
    They are barred rocks a little over 1 year old.
    I kept them on the same layer food. They were in a decent sized coop and now are free range. I have found the eggs all in the same space but not in the nesting boxes.. I will need advice on how to get them to lay eggs in teh nesting boxes if that is possible.

    Anyway.. I keep looking around the yard but have not found anything yet we do have lots of shrubs and shade they scavenge in. Any ideas?


    Thanks!

    Thank you.. I know the move was stressful but they seem to be happy! [​IMG]
    I would not be suprised if the heat is affecting them as well.
    I will do more searching but so far all the eggs layed have been in the same nest that the made on their own next to the house.
    I appreciate you taking the time for some additinal info!
    Have a Great week!
