    Not sure where to ask this....I was wondering how long it take after broody hen has hatched and raised babies till she starts to lay again?

    Average time is about 8 weeks after the chicks are hatched. Some shorter, some longer.

    If I take the babies away it seems to be about 2-3 weeks.

    Quote:No I think I will let her raise them....I think it will be alot easier since I just hatched 15 and have 41 more due next Tues. Maybe if I didn't have so many I was gonna be taking care of next time I will. [​IMG]
