    So i picked up a beautiful BLRW at a chicken swap last weekend. The woman said she was a great layer and about 1 year old. She is having a hard time adjusting to one of my BR roos (who I am shipping out tonight). Is the stress of the situation stopping her from laying? have three nest boxes that have never been used (my original flock is a couple weeks away). is she hiding them? what's the deal???????? also, how do i keep my two small rumpless from roosting in said nestboxes? plenty of room on the roosts........

    A move is a big change, it will probably throw her out of whack for a little while. Just let her get used to the routine at your house and feel secure and it will be fine.
