    is there any rule of thumb as to how long it takes hens to get comfortable after a move to start laying?

    Not sure. I'm still new to the backyard chicken thing :) we rescued ours from a pond in our neighborhood and we didnt even know how old she was. Unexpectedly she started laying about 3 weeks after we got her. And she has been laying almost an egg a day since :)

    Hope that helps :)
