    We have nine adult chickens from someone else. We have had them less than a week. Seven of them are laying, but not daily. Two have not yet played. They are all less than 2 1/2 years in age. How long til they all lay eggs and do they lay eggs everyday. Thanks New to the backyard chicken community

    Chickens don't like change. They should adapt to the new conditions in a couple of weeks.

    Chickens usually lay once a day. Not everyday, many breeds lay 300 eggs a year. Their age is starting to get to the upper bound of regular laying.
