    I lost one of my girls. I only had 4. I want to add another but am concerned about adding just ine. Local law only allows 4 hens. Any advise would help. Thank you.

    If adding an adult, you would need to go through a 30 day quarrantine to prevent spread of disease. If you pen the new one where others can see her this will help them get aquainted before you put them in together. Then, when you put her with the others do it at night.
