    After a move a hen can take a while to adjust to her new home. Most will stop laying for a few weeks while they adjust. It is quite normal.

    They're just getting settled. Are they molting at all? This can also decrease/ stop production temporarily, but usually, they won't lay until they are comfortable somewhere- but they'll start soon! [​IMG]

    i did the same thing with 2 doms just 2 weeks ago, one starting giving me eggs about 3-4 days after they got here, and the other one is just starting, and its almost like shes relearning to lay, since theyre only coming about once every three days and they are an assortment or sizes and colors. just give them time.
