Hello there and welcome to BYC!
So glad you could join our community!
Congrats on the egg this morning! Sometimes newly moved hens can stop laying for a bit. The stress of moving can shock their egg laying machines. So don't be alarmed if they stop after today or tomorrow and don't start back up for a few weeks.
Enjoy your new flock and welcome to ours!

Why do people put fake eggs in the nesting beds ?
Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. Congratulations! It's always so exciting getting that first egg. Fake eggs in the nesting boxes encourages hens to lay in the boxes (instead of somewhere else) as hens like to lay their eggs in clusters. Also, if hens peck the fake eggs, they are very hard and will not break, and so the hens learn not to peck at the eggs, which discourages potential egg eating down the road. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. What kind of chickens do you have?
