Hi! I'm fairly new at having chickens. We have 5 hens, 8 months old and one got broody. After 3 weeks of sitting on an empty nest and not laying eggs, we got her a surrogate day-old chick to raise as her own. They have bonded and things are going okay so far. My question is: when will my broody hen (now that she's a mother) start laying eggs again? Also, her comb and the other red parts on her head seem pale to me. Is this because she's stressed out? Is there anything I can do to help things go easier? Thanks for your replies!
