    Hi All - My two hens just hatched their first clutch. SO CUTE! I'm wondering when I should expect them to start laying daily eggs again. Any ideas?

    It took my broody about 2 months. She's up to 5 weeks w/ her 2nd clutch, so I'm hoping she'll step it up soon!

    I'd say at the earliest 4 weeks... could go as long a as two months.
