    Ok so my ladies have now decided to stop laying for days now its been two weeks since ive brought them home and in 2 weeks ive only had 4 eggs and I havent had any in 3 days ! whats the deal ? also is it true that they dont start laying until there comb is red ? because two of my ladies have a beige comb and no wadle i mean its starting to turn a hint of red near her skull but is it too early for those one to start laying ?

    If they are still adjusting to their new surroundings your egg production might be erratic for awhile yet.
    From your description of the combs on some of them it sounds like they are not yet at the point of lay.
