Just got 4 new hens about 3 wks ago, they all 4 started laying this summer(stated by previous owner) they are Easter egger, barred rock, coco maran, and black austro, what my question is, is that none of them have layer any eggs for me yet, do u know why they might not be laying, I introduced them to my flock of 8 hens 1 rooster, we made them a smaller coop Beside our larger coop because they were Alittle scared of my hens at first, but it's almost been a mth and still no eggs.

It takes a couple weeks for them to settle down, and then they should lay. But having said that, you didn't say how old they are, They may molt, and not start again until Spring.

I agree with fuzziebutt ... Lots of stuff comes into play but they need time to settle in ... eggs will follow ...
