Hi! Not sure if another bird can mourn the death of another one so I thought I would reach out to see if anyone else seen similiar things.
About a month ago, our RR Rooster died. He was getting old and starting to show his age and honestly, I just think he died of nature causes. We have one guinea hen in our flock that has always thought she was a chicken and her and the rooster were buddies. Since his passing, she is non-social with the others. Stays outside even when it is dark. Tries to get into smaller areas of our hen house at night instead of the boxes and on top of the boxes like she had in the past.
She is still eating but her personality just seems to have changed since he died. She was definitely social but now, not so much. Any thoughts? I feel so bad for her.
