Hey. So my CM that was successfully un-broody-ed last week (meaning she hasn't been lointering in nest boxes since she was last evicted Friday evening) still hasn't layed. How long does it usually take them to get back to it? She was a daily layer before this craziness started . . .
thanks

Sometimes a couple of weeks. If she's at the 18 month area, she may also just molt and take a break for the winter.

She's nowhere near 18 mo-this stinker is only 24 wks. She'd only been laying a month when she decided to try to hatch the foosballs I put in the nest boxes as hints for my other girls (I had 3/8 laying- now back down to 2 out of 8). :/
