    Hello! My hen, Chickie Roo has gone broody!!! She would lay every day except Sundays and now, nothing! I have closed off her nesting house for the last 24 hours...how long until she resumes her laying? Desperate for Roo's buttery eggs![​IMG]

    Mine took 3-4 days locking her out to unbroody her. Took 3 weeks total for her to start laying again. Yours might be sooner if you blocked her out faster than I did (2 weeks in to broodiness). So about a week after she got unbroody.
