    I've just added two 7-11 month old hens to my small flock (a White Leghorn and a Welsummer). Both were laying regularly prior to having their schedules disrupted by the move over to my place. How long do you find that it generally takes a healthy hen to start laying again after being moved to a new home/flock? Thanks!
     
  2. Each chicken will get comfortable and start laying on their schedule. I have experienced from 1 to 3 weeks years past. But there are many variables.
