Hello! We built a new coop for our 3 chickens and 1 turkey, which is just across the pen from their old coop. We have partially dismantled the old coop. Since the move about 10 days ago, one of our chickens has not laid any eggs (she was laying an egg every 1-2 days before the move.) She is a five year old barred rock hen. We moved the nesting boxes from the old coop to the new coop to keep things familiar. The new coop is smaller than the old coop. The area below her crop (mid-chest) is slightly hard. She is not acting sick - she eats, drinks and poops without problem, and is walking normally. Is it dangerous that she hasn't laid? Could it be egg impaction? Or is she still just getting used to her new home? Thanks!
