    Hen was born on January 26th, 2011. I bought her as an adult because I wanted eggs now. I bought her Friday Sept 23, I figured a few days for her to get settled. She seems to have gotten settled just fine. Interacts with my other hen very well, eating and drinking fine. Plenty of out side time is offered (though she won't go out unless I put her out just like my other hen Luna). How long do you think till I start getting an egg from her?

    I dont know. Some hens take longer than others. Like i bought some laying hens and the next day i had eggs, then because of my first luck i bought two more and they didnt lay for a whole week.[​IMG]

    Rats, thanks.

    I guess I should count my blessings. Luna is very timid and I was afraid the new hen would pick on her, they get along great and are buddy buddy.

    I have 9 RIR ladies the same age born in early march and only have five laying semi-regular. I was getting 4-6 eggs a day and now they have shut down to only 2 eggs yesterday. I get a few funky eggs sometimes, (no shells, half formed, no yoke, sometimes looks like chewed bubble gum. These are from the most immature ladies. I've also gotten three super jumbo size eggs that look like they came from a goose. Made me hurt just to think about it. But, I figure they will work it all out sooner or later. My birds all look and act healthy but this change in the weather from 98 to 105 degrees to the 80's almost overnight since Hurricaine Irene has messed with their production.
