Okay I got 6 female birds shipped last Monday. 3 showgirls and 3 blue cochins. I know for a fact that the cochins were laying before they were shipped, and I am not so sure about the showgirls I will have to ask. Of course not one egg yet. I haven't seen the roo mate the ochins yet either.

Do they need to get settled in more?

Thanks

It can take up to a month for them to get settled in, and this time of year it might take them longer. My bantam cochins didn't lay at all last winter, until probably February.
