Hi All you BYC Folks. We are less than a year into being chicken keepers. I am just finishing a 2nd coop. We successfully bought and raised day old babies to 17 week old pullets. AND our first little hen that flew over the fence and dubbed us chicken keepers has gone broody and hatched babies - in the middle of the construction zone that has been their home. ANYWAY - now we are wondering just how long Tootie will go without laying for us again?
