    I had a problem with my watering system. Needless to say I didn't catch it quick enough. My hens stopped laying, how long should I expect them to not lay?

    Welcome to BYC.
    It can be a while. I they were without water for long enough they could go into molt. If that is the the case it may be a couple of months. You didn't say how old they are, if they are over a year old then they will be going into the fall molt anyway. you may just have started it early.
