    I have just started with three chickens that came with a chicken tractor we purchased. It has been 3 weeks and only one of the birds is laying.
    All three were laying before the move. Same food and tractor, different yard. There is only one nest box. Is this not enough? Any ideas?

    I've heard on here that it can take awhile for chickens to get over the stress of a move... they'll come around. [​IMG]

    I agree. Give them some time.....and protein rich treats like scrambled eggs. This sometimes helps.
