Hi All, You may remember i posted a few weeks ago about my barred rock with a bite on the tush..... well we took her to the vet, and did everything for her that they told us to do... but this morning we found that she had died overnight. I am very upset about this - yesterday she was acting just fine. Anyway, the other girls (a rir and an ee) seem very upset about this too.... we only had the 3 girls, and they had been together their whole lives, almost 3 years..... So here's the question - should we try to introduce a new 3rd to their group? Or perhaps introducing 2 more would be eaiser? (our coop was built with 3 in mind, but we could probably make 4 work) And if we do add one or two chickens, should we start with chicks, pullets, or hens? If we start with older girls, i want to make sure they are just as friendly as ones we raised ourselves.... Any and all advice would be very much appreciated - i just want what's best for my girls.... and i'm afraid they'll be lonely with just the two of them.... thanks.
