    Now that my cuckoo maran seems to have recovered from her bout of being egg bound, when should I expect her to start laying again? I'm not in any rush, I just want to have an idea of what a time line might loo like. We're talking about a couple of weekend trips and would like to try to be here for her in case she has another problem. She's back to her old self, engaging, scratching and talking.

    I haven't had an experice of egg-bound yet, but it should be about 3-6 weeks before she is normal again.
