It takes a while for them to come back into lay after being broody. If you catch broodiness and break it quick, they come back into lay quicker.
Silkies are awesome mama's and go broody often. Many folks put fertilized eggs under their Silkies to hatch chicks. She will lay again soon. I currently have 2 buff orpimgtons recovering from broodiness and 1 of then hasn't laid in 3 weeks. The other was broken of her broodiness last week. I've heard some will lay as quick as a week after being broody. My experience tells me otherwise .
