    So i moved to surprise arizona on the 12th and the first few days i got about 6-9 eggs, cant remember, and then after that they completely stopped laying. I know its normal for them to stop laying when there environment changes and all but 2 weeks really. They have been in there coop for over a week now. My silkie is the only one who is laying and none of the others do, but my silkie wont lay in the boxes. She lays right in front of them. Is this normal for a big move like this or not? What should i do about my silkie. I know putting golfballs or pingpong balls help with that but she has always laid in a nest box even before i put them in my old boxes. Any advice would be helpfull.

    They should start back laying soon unless they are moulting. Do you have artificial light for them?
