Hello, I started raising chickens about 7 weeks ago. I got six pullets, 4 Isa Browns and 2 Australorps. Several weeks ago I went on vacation and had a chicken sitter for a week. When I got back, the 2 Aussies had gone broody so I looked up the cure and after having them in isolation each for 3 days they returned to the flock and seem perfectly happy but have not laid eggs for about 2 weeks now. Someone said you have to wait about 40 to 50 days. This would be the normal hatch and rearing cycle before they will lay again. As Han Solo would say, I'm not in this for your revolution, I'm in this for the eggs. Do I really have to wait that long ? The Isa Browns are doing wonderfully. Thanks.
