i bought my chicken three days ago why wont it lay eggs?
look at pics too see chicken
Give the chicken time to get used to her surroundings. How old is she BTW?
She's stressed. Egg-laying is the last thing your poor girl has on her mind. Give her a few days, maybe even a week at least. She'll get around to it.
There could be several reasons why your chicken is not laying yet
shes not old enough
shes to old
shes a rooster
its cold out
not enough daylight
not enough proper food
Give us a little more information and we'll sure try to help!
Quote:This is a great summary of why the chicken may not be laying.
I am going to wager that as soon as she feels comfortable in her new routine and surroundings she will start laying eggs for you. That is, of course, providing She is not a He... For the first week or two try to keep the routine as consistant as possible and make sure she is getting plenty of a good quality feed. She'll come around and bless you with Yummy eggs eventually. Chickens have a real knack for teaching patience. hee hee hee... Congrats on your new chicken!!
Relax. Your girls will lay in due time. Most won't lay for awhile after a move or some type of change in their environment. They may take up to a month MOL before they will lay. Be patient. It will happen.
