I got 5 chooks just over 2 weeks ago now. The leghorn is laying every second day but nothing from any of the other 4 so far. ( 1 araucana, 2 Sussex and 1 Orpington/Australorp - not sure which she is) There have been small white feathers around so I think one of the Sussex hens has gone into a molt, but it's not obvious which yet. I've been on an egg hunt and not found anything. This will be their first molt ( in their second year now ) and I'm wondering if its the stress of the move meaning they aren't laying or if they've all gone off the lay already? They live in an ark coop overnight ( the same coop they've always had) and free range during the day. Am I doing something wrong??
