I just introduced 9 14 month old red stars to my 6 month old red stars I have tons of room in the coop. Normal pecking order stuff is going on but nothing out of the ordinary. I have not seen any eggs, yet the last owner said he got 7 -9 a day. I just moved them in 36 hrs ago. 14 month old chickens are very skiddish. Will not let me near them. any advice?

they are becoming a lil friendlier but still no eggs. I am worried the guy I bought them from lied to me and they are older than he said. He was not the greatest owner he had 9 chikens in an area 3 ft by 5 ft. 2 ft high. with a mound of chicken poop in the middle and he handled the chickens very rough. I felt bad for em. But I bought them for the egg production because I cant keep up with demand. and after 2 days still nothing. I am still new to this.
