    Hello there!
    I have a problem with my 7 m silkie hen.
    She is an indoor pet.laying 4 eggs a week.
    Latley she is very grumpy all day sitting and get angry with me.
    She is behaving very broody like
    But in 3 different locations on our bedroom.not in her place.
    And still laying eggs.
    But she behave like a classic broody.
    All tail up screaming at me whan im close.sitting all day like a pancacke and being grumpy if i call her
    Eats little.
    All fluffed up and angry.
    Do you think it is broodines?
    She is not sick bcs everything is fine with her poop and body.
    Im a vet i just dont get the broody thing in indoors pets.
    Anyone with some knowledge?

    Hi, When you say silkie, I hear broody because that is their favorite past time. She is moving to different locations because your taking her eggs ! She is trying to hide them from you. LOL I love silkies They stop laying after they build up a clutch to sit on. You might search Breaking broodies in the advanced search bar.
