    So I have a black silkie hen that I think has gone broody. My rooster has left 2 weeks ago from today so is there still a chance her eggs are fertile? The reason I think she is broody is because when I inside the coop she was so puffed up she was almost doing I handstand looking thing [​IMG] Then she started growling and pecking my hand but not to the point where I need to where gloves.
    Does this sound like a broody behavior to you?

    Did you ever find out if she was broody or not?
