    I picked up a new sweet Easter Egger girl yesterday! She's laying, so I'm wondering, how long will it take for her to lay over here? How long did it take your chickens?

    4-14 days depending on her mode at the other place (laying vs broody) and her disposition.

    She may lay an egg or two initially (those that were already in the production line) and then she will probably take a break. This 'break' may vary from a matter of days to weeks.

    I picked up 3 RRs last week and they haven't stopped laying yet. I introduced them about an hour before sunset which seemed to help with the breaking in period.
