    I have a hen who became injured and stopped laying.  She has healed now and seems to be doing well.  How long until she should start laying again?  It's been about 2 weeks since she's been healthy again.

    Thanks Mary! I got 7 day old chicks in March and now only two of them are laying! I guess my chickens are trying to teach me to be patient!!
