    One of my two hens just passed due to pneumonia, leaving just one hen who is used to having a buddy 24/7. The hen that we still have left has never been sick, we are guessing she has a stronger immune system. We are looking for a new buddy for her, but we want a hen who has a better/stronger immune system, is friendly, will allow us to pat/hold her, and also be semi-exotic.(Really just look nice.) Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Although they're not exotic, Buff Orpingtons have beautiful plumage and are very sweet. They're very hardy, also.
