Chicken "crying"?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Prior to a few days ago, I had a 4 year old beautiful white Plymouth Rock / Wyandotte mix hen "Shanequa" who just passed away.  About a year ago I adopted an 8 month old black hen "Jenni" (pardon the fact I don't know the breed).  While they got off to a rocky start, the've became great friends.  

 

Noticed something odd with Jenni.  Every time I approach her, she shrieks / cries and her features poof up.  I wonder if she's crying/mourning the loss of Shanequa?  Check out a short YouTube video I made this morning, letting her out of her coop: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HI0AyJPJ3i8

I believe she is getting ready to go broody.  Get some fertile eggs and increase your flock if that proves to be the case.  Yes, I am an enabler.

Friends are the family you make for yourself.

Hmm, good point.  Neither have been broody before so I've never noted how they "act" when they are.  

 

I have been contemplating getting another baby chick...still mourning over the loss of the other hen.  She really was a great bird.
