    My 8 month old australorp went broody about 6 weeks ago. She finally stopped living in the eggless nest box but has not returned to laying.

    How long does it take for a hen to start laying again? She was my best egg layer!

    I didn't know my hens had access to BYC! Apparently Opus read my post and decided it was time to get to work again.

    I guess that must be like washing your windows to get it to rain! Glad she started up again!
