I am new at the chicken-raising experience. My hubby built a coop for me and I got three laying hens from my friend, who has lots of chickens. We got three eggs in the first two days and NONE since then. It has been over a month. I keep the hens in a coop, where my friend had let them free range a bit more. Would that make a difference? They started losing a lot of feathers at first but that seems to have slowed down some. Is it possible that they have been too traumatized? Will they ever lay for me? Do I need to buy different ones and give these back? I am so disappointed!
