We bought 2 hens about 2 weeks ago. One has been laying 1 egg every other day. The other hasn't laid anything. How long does it take a chicken to settle in?? The black one who has not laid had a bit of diarrhea and a messy backend. I was worried about flies getting to her so I bathed her. Couldn't feel any thing pressing around the vent (and didn't really want to explore that further) She seems to have perked up a bit after that and her poo is looking a bit more solid but still no eggs. But I have noticed that the poo sometimes looks a bit yolkie (if that makes sense). I don't know how old the girls are but feeling blackies breastbone during the bath it feels quite solid. We've given them some kitchen scraps (rice, pasta, salad) as treats to help them settle in. Otherwise they get laying feed pellets, mash, and korn kernels (not sure what to call that). I'm wondering if we are feeding them enough? Any help would be appreciated! Let me know if you need more info!! Thanks - C.
