    A friend gave me 3 hens that had been laying. I've had them for 4 days and not one of them has layed. Does it take awhile for them to get used to their new home?

    They're probably a bit stressed, it may take a week or two.

    I agree, they need a little time to get used to their new home and all. You should see some eggs shortly. [​IMG]

    Ok, thanks. I figured they'd need some time but I wasn't sure how much was usual.
