My one EE hen has been broody for a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time, and she finally has some chicks she is rearing up. They are all about 7 weeks old now. How long should I expect her to wait until she starts laying again? Or is she just al screwed up from being broody for so long? Dumb birdie...we tried EVERYTHING we could think of to de-broody her and it wasnt to be. We finally gave in after dealing with her broodiness for months...at least 6. It doesnt matter to us if she wil lay or not...just not sure if we should expect anything or not... Thanks!
