2 months of broodiness takes a lot out of a hen. Brooding is a debilitating process, and she may not resume laying until after she has gone through a molt.

I had a hen who was broody for half the year and kept failing, then she stopped for a few monthes, went broody this spring and hatched some chicks, and is now molting normally again. I hope she starts laying soon too.
