I have an 8 month old Silkie that has been laying every other day. For the last few days I have found her in the nest box all day. I lifted her to see if she had an egg, and there was one, but I am not sure if it was hers. Since 3 days ago, she hasn't laid, but sits in the box all day and night. This morning I picked her up and tried to feel her underside for an egg stuck, but I can't tell if she has one in there. Also I put her down on the ground and she walked to the food dish, ate ravenously and drank a lot of water. Then went right back in the box. Is she broody with no eggs? She normally lays and just leaves the eggs. I have no roos either. Or do you think she is egg bound. She is normally quite loud and tries to dominate all the other girls. So this is out of charachter for her totally. When I get home I am going to see if anything changed, but I am worried she might be egg bound. Another note, when I pick her up and put her down, she doesn't try to sit or anything, so that is what is confusing me. She is a new layer and very young to be having any issues. I have 5 total and they are all super spoiled and well taken care of. So I am stumped. Thanks for the help!
