    I have 4 Silkies, all under 7 months old. None has yet laid an egg. And test suddenly today they are all hooked up in the sawdust inside the coop and won't seem to come out for any reason. See?


    Is it possible for 4 Silkies to suddenly go broody at once like this? Or is it more likely that we'll be getting on eggs soon ?
