    We just got a family of chickens (rooster, hen, 6 chicks). I believe the chickens are a couple of weeks old. How long till the hen (the mommy) will start laying eggs again? Do we need to do anything for her between now and then (or after?)

    Thanks

    I have them seen start earlier, but around 5 or 6 weeks she will begin to wean the chicks, you can expect eggs shortly after
