I have a young silkie hen that started laying about a month or so ago. She laid about 4 eggs and now has stopped for about 3 weeks now. Hasnt laid an egg since. Any reasons for this?

Silkies are not as dependable layers as many other breeds. They are very good at being broody though. Is she making cooing sounds or sitting in a nest like area?

Yeah she makes alot of different sounds. She makes nests in the grass outside but she also explores around. So i really dont know. Is there any way to encourage her to lay eggs?
