I have a bantam cochin rooster in with one silkie hen and the silkie hen recently went broody so he's stuck all alone in his run. He's acting almost depressed-like.. kind of lethargic and I want to know if he's either sick or if he is actually depressed from being lonely. Poor little guy. He's sitting on my lap sleeping as I type this. He also sounds different. He has sad little "bawwwkkkk....." 's... breaks my heart!!! So am I just being stupid or can chickens get depressed? He has no other sick symptoms.. although the hen was wheezing the other day whenever she breathed but I've been treating them with antibiotics and she seems fine now. Editted to add: He used to have a total of 5 silkie hens but I got rid of 4 of them a few weeks ago so he's used to having more buddies around.
