Hi, my Silkie, Blanche, has not laid in four days. She just wants to lay in the coop and not run around the yard. She seems like she wants to lay an egg, but hasn't. She is drinking and eating and when I remove her from the coop she will have a bowel movement that's quite large. Blanche then will run laps around the yard, ending up back in the coop when I leave. I have had her for a month and a half and I was told she was a year old. Any help would be great.

Thanks!

she's broody. Put some fertile eggs under her or do a search on breaking a broody hen.
