    So I bought Americanus hens and one or two had an egg for 3 days and NOW NOTHING!!!!! There are roosters about and a nice coop with boxes kept clean. The threev new ones hang out with the low man on the totem pole in the enclosure (though it's open...what is happening herre?[​IMG]

    I'm still a newbie, but from what I've read on this forum, there are a lot of reasons for hens to stop laying - stress from moving to a new home is 1 reason.
    Maybe someone with more experience can help more.

    Many times,, hens will quit laying due to stress of moves. Sometimes it can take 2 to 3 weeks before they are settled in and get back to laying.
    They will start laying again but it might take some time.
