    Hi all,
    Last week one of the leghorns (of all things!) started trying to go broody - won't get out of the nest, plucked breast feathers, etc. We have gotten her over that, but I don't think she is laying again yet. How long after they stop being broody before they start laying again?

    I believe it is about 5 weeks.
