    Hi everyone! I just recently bought a flock of seven chickens (6 BO hens and a roo). The lady I got them from said they had not been laying for the last several weeks due to the heat. I have only had them two days. I know they will have to get settled in here before they are comfortable enough to lay. Is there anything I can do or feed them to help them along? The hens are between the ages of one and two years old and are very healthy. Is there anything I need to watch for if there are any complications (being egg bound). Is it normal for them to take breaks like this? Thanks in advance!
