    i have 17 chickens, 10 of them i recently got at an auction on the 18th. they all stopped laying about 5 days ago. (the ones that i ha before the auction) i am wondering if the newcomers are causing the others to stop laying, or if they aren't laying where they should... any ideas?

    It is quite possible that the addition of the newcomers has stopped the egg laying. It could be a while until they start again.
