When will my hen lay eggs again?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My bantam game hen layed 8 eggs sit on them for few days & a small predator came in couple of nights ago & ate her eggs & bite a semi deep wound on her back. Meanwhile i been building them a better & safer coop so we moved them in their 2 nights ago & she hasn't started laying any eggs yet she went in & out of house & nest box but hasn't show any signs of nesting will she lay again even after her injury? Thank you

She has probably gone into shock. After a predator being so close to her, and her being so close to death.

She probably won't lay for 2 weeks to 1 month.

I often have had hens that will not lay for at-least  3 months after another hen was killed. She will start to lay as soon as she feels comfortable with her safety.
