I have 5 Rhode Island Red hens that I purchased 10 days ago. They are one year old and the previous owner said they consistently laid daily. The chickens still have not started laying their eggs. Is this still from the stress of moving? How long will this phase last? They are on a Nutrena egg layer feed with mixed in oyster shells and always have plenty of water and coop space. What more can I do to help the chickens lay eggs?
