    I know hens that hatch chicks usually ween them at 8 - 12 weeks and usualy start laying again
    My hen sat for 2 days then I took the eggs away. She has broken her broody and hasn't sat on the empty nest..... when should i expect her to lay again

    It generally takes my girls about a week to start laying again. Sometimes a little longer, but less than 2 weeks.
