    Hi,
    I have had my 3 pullets for more than a week now and still no eggs. [​IMG] .....
    I know they have to "settle in" to their new home, but I am unsure if this is normal ?
    Any help would be greatly appreacheated!
    Thank you !

    What breed, and how old are they? Some breeds are nearly a year old before they lay. What are you feeding? Diet is very important, and also how many hours of light are they getting?

    They also quit laying when they are stressed, such as moving to a new environment.
