Lost his best friend!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi! I've trolled here a lot but have never posted. I lost my little frizzle today ☹
She and my male silkie were best friends and always slept together. Now that she's gone, should he be in the coop alone at night? Or should I put a couple girls his age in there with him? (They have been roosting in the tree just outside the coop.). They're almost 4 months old. The other girls are polish, so I'm sure they will still roost high, I'm just sad he's gonna be all alone!

Welcome to BYC. Sorry for your loss. I would hate for any predators to get your chickens that are roosting outside at night, but that could happen. Owls, raccoons, foxes, and all sorts of predators can get chickens at night. It might be good to lock all of your chickens inside the coop and run 24/7 for a week. That way they will learn where to sleep at night, and they should then start roosting inside at night and your silkie will hopefully have some companions.
