How long after a hen hatches chicks does she start laying eggs again
Well she has to raise the chick which might take anywhere from 6 weeks to 3 months. Im not quite sure how long afterwards will she actually start to lay eggs again
My experience is 8 weeks. After that she kicks the chicklets out of the nest and will resume laying.
Welcome . Glad you are here
I would defer to two previous posters, but welcome!
x2 Hello, from the Big Bear mountains of Ca. Glad you found us.
I agree with miss. When those chicks are about 6-8 weeks old you will notice the hen starting to ignore
them, then she'll start laying again soon after.
On this page is an answer to a similar question, but I don't have the knowledge to say something on the accuracy of that answer.
