    I have a hen that likes to sit and poop in her food, water, etc. She seems kind of, um, slow. She is so chill she just kind of bops around and seems oblivious. I have a 5 weeks old cockerel that is the very same way. But my 8 month old roo is a total nut. He is always so on guard and hyper. Is this normal Silkie behaviour?[​IMG]

    Yes
    Silkies have different personalities, but most that I have seen are kinda... slow. Even my own silkies are.
