    Varies chicken to chicken. Once they calm down and see the new place as home they will start laying. Could take a week or it could take a month or longer [​IMG]Welcome to the site!

    [​IMG]try putting a golf ball or two in the nest box, to let them know that is where they lay eggs at their new house.
