    Evening all, this is my first time on here. Im hoping someone can help me. I was given to hens on Christmas Eve. They seem to have settled in really well even though these are the first chickens I have owned. But should they be laying eggs yet or am i being a bit impatient......

    Hens sometimes have adjustment periods when being relocated that can last several weeks. It also would depend on what age your hens are?
