    She probably is not laying anymore due to stress. She must have just been ready to lay an egg when you got them. But moving birds can be very stressful I imagine this is why she is not laying.

    I understand it's been a awhile but the stress may have ended her laying season and now you just have to wait for the next one.

    Feeds with 20% or more protein content are good and if you want to give them something extra they love roasted mealworms.
