    2 leghorns 22 weeks (never layed), 2 Domineckers 38 weeks old (guessing and formerly laying large brown eggs at the prior owners house), one Black Star 14 weeks and one Gold Star at 14 weeks.(never layed)
    All been together since last Sunday in their new coop and containment area. Feeding layer crumbles and scatch with a handful of cat chow thrown in for extra protein.
    When will they, anybody, lay an egg? We are totally new to the "chicken culture" and realize there is a lot to learn. We are studying this as hard as we can.
    Thank you in advance for your replies.

    It can take them anywhere from a couple days to a couple weeks to settle in at a new place.
