I'm wondering, will new chickens take time to adjust to new surroundings before laying? We've had unseasonably warm weather lately, so I hoped for at least one egg. I might sound silly, but I'm new at this :/ it's been almost a week, and they all still insist on sleeping on the ground at night.. I've never seen them on their roost or in nesting boxes! I've got three laying hens and two roosters.
