I'm not sure what is happening with my girls. I have 6 hens around a year old and recently got 6 other hens and put them all together in a new huge roomy coop and all the egg laying stopped! Not one egg out of 12 hens for a week! Any ideas as to what could be happening? Any help would be great!

This is a completely normal reaction to a stressor (such as the introduction of new birds or, for your new birds being moved to a new home). Production is the first thing to shut down when a bird has suffered a stress - the good news is, that it will come back online as they settle back down.
