We have a partridge Cochin bantam that just hatched out eggs 3 weeks ago. She is being the best mother hen there is and teaching her babies how to scratch and eat.

I was just so surprised to see that she has already started laying an egg yesterday and one more today. Is it normal for her to lay only 3 weeks after hatching out chicks?

Yep, pretty much! It won't be long before she starts roosting with the flock again and leaving her chicks on the floor of the coop.
