Yep, totally normal. I fixed my by the common "broody breaker". You need a wire cage with a wire bottom, no liner. You need to put the chicken in the cage with no bedding, just food and water for 2-3 days. This cools down her body temperature and resets her system. Look it up under the forums here, there is plenty of advice. If you need any help, just PM me. Good luck!

Haha, thanks for that. I wasn't aware silkies were considered a bantam, I thought they were their own special category. Are silkies pretty winter hardy?

She's looking to sell them within the next month... are we crazy? We'll need to put a hutch together and figure out how to care for them, etc.
The irony is that *I* am the one who wants all these animals and he shows little interest or knocks the idea down most of the time, but HE is the one who said "yes" when our daughter asked to hatch chickens and I was more of the "let's wait until next year when we don't have a new baby on the way"... now HE is saying yes to rabbits when I was just putting feelers out there, Christmas is coming for goodness sakes!
Woo Hoo! It must be catching, tolerant if not enabling husbands. In my house, the rule pretty much is we can have the pet if I take care of it. He wants a chinchilla, but I have a feeling there is a lot more involved with them. And we only have a 1008 square foot house.
