    I have a beautiful Silkie hen, Cheesy Pouf, that for the last two days seems depressed. She's in her nest box now and has been in there off and on for two days. Usually she goes in only to lay and go to sleep, snuggled up with her man. She's laying in there, facing a corner just looking sad. She's breathing fine, no diarrhea, parasites, etc. Just needs a bath. She's been laying just fine, too. She seems to get like this about every 4ish months. Could it be that she just wants a bath and a blow out and pampered a little?

    Well, not today as the other hen I had in there ate Cheese's flipping egg. I am so mad. DH has moved the egg eater until we figure out what to do. Maybe she's mad her egg got eaten? [​IMG]
