    I am down in south Louisiana. I recently got two new hens that were previously laying an egg a day. Since picking the up they have not layed an egg in 4 days is this normal?


  2. Completely normal. They will take their time getting used to things before they get back to laying. Some will take up to 3 weeks or so. Show em the nest boxes and they will lay eventually. That is if they are actual layers and not old spent hens.

    Wish ya the best.

    I just got a new to me flock of rooster, layers and pullets and the layers didn't miss a beat when I moved them in....but there were no other chickens here to integrate them to.
