    A change in environment can cause them stress and to stop laying. Moving home can certainly knock their laying. They likely laid the day you got them because the egg was already made and ready to be laid. It takes the hen 24 hours to produce an egg. This will have started prior to you picking them up.

    With time and once they feel at home they should start up laying again.

    How long do you think it can take for them to start laying again

    Could be a few more days or could be a few more weeks, I can't tell you for sure when it will be I'm afraid.

    Make sure they have good quality food, fresh water and are as settled as can be.
