    in a word 'stress' - chickens don't like change and it will throw them off laying for a while in many circumstances. It may just be a few days, it may be a few weeks before she settles to lay again. Just be patient and give her time to get used to her new surroundings. Just to note that she may also go into a stress induced moult and this is normal too.

    A good layer feed would work well. Chickens are omnivores. Almost anything you can eat they can. Grains make the base of most feeds, so any grains are a start. Table scraps add different nutrients to the mix. If she has an area to search for her own food that is to the good.
