I finished my chicken coop, then couldn't wait, I wanted to be an instant farmer. I got 5 hens that we're about 1 year old. The first day I got one egg and then nothing since. (About a week) anything a beginner might be doing wrong?
Feed: layer pellets 16% (40%) scratch (60%) allowed to feed as they like.
Coop: 6'x6' 5 foot tall. One 12x12 window and a 20x24 opening into the run.
Run: 6'x16'. 14968786987812010891146.jpg

Cut back on the scratch ... give it a little as a treat, but let them forage as much as possible and feed available at all times.

You just got these hens a week ago? Moving hens to a new environment can be stressful for them, throws the pecking order out of whack and they have to settle in a little. Have a little patience, should be eggs again soon.
