    I had a hen start laying. She layed for a couple weeks then she went broody. Well she was broody for a couple week. Well two weeks later I've yet to get an egg from her again. Any help is appreciated.

    What is your Question? If your wondering why she hasn't started laying again there could be a few reasons, she could still be broody, and if not in the nests she could have made her own. It is almost winder and many chickens slow or completely stop laying in the cold short days. And there are some breeds like Easter Eggers that, well.. just dont lay consistently. Its everywhere this year it seems, everyone's EE and a few other breeds just kinda stop sometimes.
