    Well my new year old LBrahma(standard) is not laying. Shes been here for 1 week(or more). No eggs. I searched everywhere. I feed her lay crumble, one in a huge while(maybe once a week) rice, during the day they are free in the run. I also give them crushed egg shells, and oyster shell. Help. i dont think she is impacted though

    When new hens are brought into new surroundings they will not lay for quite awhile til they get use to everything. The henhouse is different, nestboxes, other chickens and where their feed and water is, are all new to them so they have to get use to things..Sometimes it takes acouple months before they will lay again.. Patience...
