Hey everyone! I'm still pretty new to the chicken game, so I'm trying to figure out what's going on with my chickens. We have a silkie that just began laying eggs a few months ago. Now all of the sudden she won't leave her nesting box. She's not really mean when we take her out, but she hates it when we force her out. I've checked her over and I don't notice anything wrong with her, but once we get her out to run around we have an Easter egger that just goes after her aggressively. Once the Easter egger starts the others start too. The chickens are free range and have been raised together. My question is, is our silkie staying in the nesting box because she's broody, or because she's just hiding from the other chickens? We have had some crazy weather here lately, and my husband thought she was staying in her nesting box because she was just cold. She does act a little itchy when we get her out, but it's also been windy, and none of the other birds are acting like there's a problem. They are all free range birds, but we lock them up at night. We have two silkies, one B.O. one barred rock and one Easter egger. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!
