We adopted 5 hens from a friend about 2 months ago. They've been free ranging in our backyard just fine the whole time (roosting in a locked coop at night) Well, something came and snatched up 4 of them this morning. Wondering if it's okay to have just one hen? We definitely want more, one won't fill our egg needs. Not sure what to do. Get chicks right away and integrate them when the chicks are bigger? Just leave her by herself and get chicks/hens next summer? Are they harder to socialize the longer they've been alone? We have a friend with a lot of land and quite a few hens, would she be better off there? Thank you for your time and advice.
