    About a week and a half ago I got a pair of Golden Laced Polish (at least I think 1 is a roo) The very next day one laid an egg but I have had nothing since. We got a new coop about 5-6 days ago and I moved them in there since they had previously been hanging out in the garage. They have been in there every since and I have not had a egg laid yet. They don't like to go out in the run either I have to literally herd them out and I feed them treats outside to help get them more comfortable. So I am pretty sure they are stressed but when can I expect to start getting eggs again? Any ideas to help them get more comfortable?

    Whenever chickens suffer some kind of stress like a move from one property or coop to another, they will usually stop laying for a few days to weeks. The egg you got the next day is only because it was already "in the works" before the move. Give them a little time to adjust and they'll get back to laying for you.

    Thank you! Is there any good way to help them adjust and get comfortable or just time?
