Three weeks ago we took in an 8 month old Silkie named Mudpie. Her previous owner said she had been laying every 2 days or so. Since she came to us.....nothing. Ideas?

Chickens hate change. Generally after being moved to a new environment the stress causes them to stop laying for a period of time. Nothing unusual here. Be patient - she will resume laying. Understand however that silkies are not prolific layers.
