    Of my 4 seven month old pullets, I have one barred rock that lays daily. One other barred rock laid for about 5 days, then went broody for 2 weeks. She has been broken and back to normal with the flock for about a week, but how long until she starts to lay again? 1 egg a day isn't enough. [​IMG] I'm getting impatient for the other two (BOs), as well.
    Just looking for some reassurance!

    Every chicken is different. Some will start up again in a week and some will take much longer, like a month or two.
