Broody silkie hen

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

So I have a black silkie hen that I think has gone broody. My rooster has left 2 weeks ago from today so is there still a chance her eggs are fertile? The reason I think she is broody is because when I inside the coop she was so puffed up she was almost doing I handstand looking thing :lol: Then she started growling and pecking my hand but not to the point where I need to where gloves.

Does this sound like a broody behavior to you?
