    A few weeks ago i picked up two 16 month old hens.
    They were laying for the last year at their old house.
    I have had them for 3 weeks and they have not layed one single egg.
    I have increased the protein with eggs and cottage cheese but still nothing.

    What am I doing wrong???

    It could be the stress of the move has altered their laying cycle. Possible they are headed into a molt. Or possible that perhaps they really weren't laying as well as the seller thought. What kind are they?

    Agrees with LG...... moving is stressful and a bird that age is probably going to molt soon.

    Do you have other birds....how did the integration go?
    Do you free range?
