    How old are they? What is your temperature like? Are they molting?

    And...how long have you had them?

    It can take some time for them to settle back into their routine after being moved to a new place.

    When we got our hens it took one about a week to start laying again and the other about 2 weeks. I hope you start to get eggs soon.
