Hi everyone so i'm pretty new to chickens and have never dealt with broody chickens before so if there is something obvious that i have missed please don't judge. Anyways i have a silkie and she has started to lie down during the day. a couple of days ago i went to check on my girls and boy while they were out free ranging and saw that she was just lying down on the grass and all the others were off chasing grass hoppers i thought it was weird so i walked up to her and as i pet her she got up and moved back into the coop. the next day i went to check on them again and the same thing except she was in the coop instead of on the grass. this morning i went down to let my rooster out and there she was just lying down. she has only been laying for 3 and a half weeks so could she possibly be going broody or is she sick in some way.
here she is this morning
