After hatching Q

any where from 1 - 6 months, my silkie didnt lay for about 5 months after her last hatch !!!!
I had one start laying again after about 2 -2&1/2 months, after she left her chicks. Then I have one who is laying, her chicks are still with her, and about 1&1/2 months old.
I found mine sneaking away to the coop to lay about 2 weeks after hatch. I noticed this because the chicks were outside and would go nuts because they didn't know where mom went. Its the quickest I've ever seen a hen lay an egg, boy is she efficient. Anyhow, she has been laying regularly ever since the chicks fledged the coop.
