    I got some Chicken Tuesday they were laying before I got them. How long will it take for them to start back laying?

    Where are you located?

    How warm is it there?

    Do you have lights in your coop?

    Shouldn't take long.

    All depends on the chicken, Ive bought chickens and by the time we got them home there was an egg in the bin with them, some that wait a few days to get settled and others that wait a week to 2 weeks.

    Also if your lacking light where you are it could take longer, chickens need 14 hours of light a day to lay good.

    Depends on the chicken. I had one lay an egg the same day I brought them home. Others have taken weeks.
