    could be stress due to the new environment. Hens usually stop laying for a while until they are settled in. how long it lasts depends on the chicken.

    Sometimes they'll take short (or long) breaks for different reasons, including stress, weather, and health. One thing to look out for is the comb getting pale or smaller. That's when you should worry.
