    I bought four 1 yo leghorn hens from somebody who was moving (I researched and trust this person). Two days after they arrived, we got two eggs. That evening, we added a rooster. Now we've had two days without eggs.

    I understand that they will most likely stop laying for awhile after all of the changes. Any idea how long we'll have to wait for eggs?

    Thanks!

    I actually had the same concern myself when we brought ours home, but its only been three days and we have an egg. I'll let you know if there are more tomorrow.
