    I have a small flock of seven chickens. My one maran went broody about a month ago. I finally separated her about two and a half week ago for about 3 days. She has been back in the flock for about 2 weeks now, but still no eggs. She doesn't seem to be broody at all any more. What is going on?

    Her hormones are still unbalanced.
    My two Brahma hens took four and a half weeks to return to laying and both did so on the same day.
    I think that your girl will start up again soon,

    Good Luck,
