    Hello,

    I just obtained two bantam hens Friday and I haven't seen any eggs yet. Is there a chance it may take awhile for them to get used to their new home before they begin laying?

    You got it. Had they begun laying according to the seller? Every time I have brought home started birds, they usually had a period of adjustment before they laid any eggs... up to three weeks but more often sooner 7-10 days usually.

    Thanks for the peace of mind. I honestly didn't even think to ask about their egg laying.
