Well, I think I FINALLY broke my broody silkie using the wire cage method, but she is VERY THIN. She's eating, drinking, scratching around, etc. so I'm not concerned that she's in danger or anything, I'm just wondering if there is anything special I can or should do for her? Or should I just let her gain the weight back on her own time?

She'll gain it back on her own, but I'd still probably offer her some of her favorite foods anyway. Maybe some scrambled eggs, if you have them to spare.

Ditto, I like to make droopy ones a mash of cooked oatmeal, with a little cat food, and yogurt, all mixed up. They LOVE it. Also grapes are a good snack that my hens love. She sounds like she could use a little extra TLC too.
