    I've heard people say that their broody started laying eggs two weeks after and others have said up to eight weeks.

    Mine started about four weeks after hatching her chick.

    Depends on the hen. I have one that started laying again 2 weeks to the day after the dog found her eggs. Then I had another that raised her chicks to almost 3 months old, started laying the next day, and went broody again about a week later. I also have one that has chicks about 2 months old, that has been laying for about a month, so like I said, really depends on the hen...
