    So one of my hens went broody... all went great she hatched her eggs and started laying again. BUT my other hen stopped laying eggs when all this was happening. She still hasn't started laying eggs again. Help!

    Maybe she's jealous and wants babies of her own? Is she in the nest box a lot?

    Or did she start laying them elsewhere - in a hidden nest? You might want to go on an egg hunt [​IMG]
