    If a hen goes broody and either hatches or has a failed hatch will she start to lay again or wait till she molts we had an early spring in the northeast? Im not sure what to do?

    Ok then i feel its in my best intrest to keep her from going broody as best i can! They just started to lay again about a month ago and, i beleive they molted late fall or during the winter they stoped laying around mid november. I apreciate your insight and ask for more thanks!
