So my first hen went broody, an Autralorp, hatched out 2 eggs, so when can I expect her to lay again? I have another Australorp due to hatch out her eggs this weekend...

The first chicks are 1 week and 4 days old. Do they not lay till she leaves the chicks, or can I expect an egg soon? I have never read anything about this, so I hope someone has an answer for me!

Thx everyone!

I have had hens start laying after 3 or 4 weeks and others go as much as a couple of months. In my experience it varies from hen to hen and from breed to breed. I have never had Australorps, but they are on my wish list.
