We bought 6 red hens which are supposed to lay large brown eggs. We brought them home a week ago and put them in with our 3 five month old Wyandotte Lace roosters. We also have two Siklie chicks that are about two and a half months old and four guineas that were hatched 6-12-13. The hens were supposed to be good layers but so far we haven't seen any eggs. We kept them cooped up for about 3 days and then turned them out. I have watched them and if I hear one cackle I go and check it out but no eggs. Does anyone know how long it takes hens to start laying after they have been moved to a new home? They were the only chickens at their last home. Could that be part of the problem?
