When will my hen start laying eggs again?

Hey everybody,

My silkie hen was broody a few weeks ago, she finally gave up. She still hasn’t started laying any eggs again. When will she start laying again?

It usually take about a month for them to resume laying, though if she was broody for a long time she might take longer because they tend to lose weight and parasites can get out of control during setting, especially with silkies, next time it's kinder to break them right away if you don't plan to let them hatch.

I gave her a few eggs to hatch, but in the end-no chicks :( But I don't think I will let her go broody again, thanks!
