I am new to raising chickens but my grand daughter wanted to start. I bought 2 RIR hens that were supposedly laying. The lady I got them from said the birds were free ranging and never used a nesting box. I have a coop and run with nesting boxes. I have had them about a week now and no eggs yet. I am using the same food they have been eating. I am thinking it is just a little shock and nerves getting use to a new place that has gotten them upset. Any suggestions, Callie is waiting on eggs. Thanks in advance.
