    I moved a couple hours away from home 2.5 weeks ago and sadly, my baby girls are back with my parents and I miss them so much.

    I cant help but worry that there hasnt been more than 1 egg out of 2 of them since I have left. One is coming out of a molt so I am not too concerned (but she was the one who laid the 1 egg) but my other hen hasnt laid at all since I moved. She molted in October and started laying again for almost a month and now nothing.

    I cant help but worry about it because leaving them was so hard! Is it normal for her to stop laying once she started up again?

    Chickens will stop laying if there is a big change or when they are stressed, but when they get used to there newer life they start laying again. I hope that helps. :)
