Or just let him go, don't replace him .....help reduce your flock to better fit into the tiny coop.

Integrating(adding) a single bird can be difficult, integrating any birds takes extra space.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

Oh I'm not going to replace him. Goung to a chicken swap togive him away. I'm going to take your advice. 5 should work in my "6 chicken coop and expansion pen . 3 silkies, 2 buff orpingtons. wink.png

That should make for a decent flock. The Orpingtons are large birds and the silkies are smaller, but as a rule they're both breeds that get along well with others. And they're both so pretty :)
