Hi, I wrote to you all a little over a month ago, asking if my Silkie (Sadie) was brooding as all she was doing was sitting all snuggly in one of the nesting boxes, and had stopped laying. Well, she is "still" doing it, and every so often we find an egg from the other girls under her. She seems very dazed when we move her, however when picked up and put outside to eat "treats", she makes noises (as if we disturbed her), but pecks around and enjoys the yummy treats. After a few minutes of this, she goes right back to the box and snuggles down. She hasn't laid at all, but seems healthy. No weight loss, feather loss or anything we can "see". We tried separating her to a cage where she couldn't "brood" and "evicted" her from her spot over and over again, but nothing seems to be detering her from this odd behavior. Our question is...is this normal and ok? Will she come out of this behavior? Should I find her some fertile eggs to sit on? HELP!
