    I only have two laying hens and one decided to go broody. Fortunately I did have some eggs that had been in the bator for almost a week so I took 4 and put them with her. After they hatch how long will it take before she begins laying again? I'm gonna miss my eggs!

    After they hatch, anywhere from 4-8 weeks before they lay again.
