I have a 6.5 week old very shy white silkie. When I went out to check them this evening she was just laying all hunkered down. I actually thought she was dead! Normally she runs away when I come by her but she just nestled more and didn't get up when I gave her a poke. When I tried to lift her she did get up and walk but then went back to her "spot" and dug down in the wood chips again. I know it's too soon for eggs but is she just practicing being broody?
