Lonely hen

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have had 3 hens for 6 years. Two have died and one is left. She has now taken up the sounds of a rooster at all times of the day but mostly it is a problem at 5:30 am. If I am out there with her she quiets, but the minute I leave she screams again. The neighbors are having a problem with this. I would hate to lose her. Any advice.

Welcome to BYC!
I'd get her a new friend(s). She is probably lonely. I'm not sure it would help with the crowing, but it's worth a shot.
