my 1 year old silkie started laying in December and was laying consistently. She was still on the freedom chick starter crumble food. When that ran out we switched her to a layer pellet food. This was 2 weeks ago. About a week later she wasn’t laying and just sat in her nesting box consistently all day. I have since switched her back to a crumble since she didn’t like the pellet texture. But she still isn’t laying. I’ve checked for mites/parasites - nothing. I gave her a warm bath and felt around her stomach and other than pooping a lot which smelled horrible, it didn’t appear to help. I’m not sure if she’s egg bound though because I will get her out of her nesting box and let her run free in the yard. But she will try to scratch and make a hole/nest is the yard where she can to sit in. She will walk around all day, eat and drink water but then gets fiesty when I try to put her back in the coop, even though she wants to sit in her box. All I can think is She is acting broody - but with no eggs or no rooster!! Or is she able to walk around egg bound? Any ideas of why she isn’t laying or acting like this all of a sudden?
