I have two silkies. One white and one black. As far as i know, they are both hens. Both have laid eggs. I am not an expert, these were given to me for easter as chicks and they have been hanging out in my backyard since then. She stays inside the coop I built and only comes out when i take her out. I give them chicken feed from the feedstore. She eats and drinks but will not leave the coop. I take her eggs away and put her downstairs but she always runs right back up to the coop. She also does this weird stride with her wings spread out whenever I get near her. I have also notice her feathers on her chest are gone. Her craw is also very hard, I can feel the stuff inside it and squish it but its like silly putty. She eats and drinks and seems to be in good health but is not acting like the chicken she used to be. The two of them used to be inseperable so I dont know whats going on. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
