Hi there, I'm utterly heartbroken, as a strangers dog attacked my beloved Pekin Bantam Rooster on Tuesday, I did what I could but the vets said the kindest thing in the end was to put him down. I'm heartbroken, he was truly a part of our family. He acted more like a dog then a chicken! Anyway, my flock situation is a little different. The flock was my beloved Roo, a hen, and interestingly they had only one chick this year. The chick is now fully grown, but the three were very close. He was a very good dad, he would feed the chick and even when it was fully grown. (Note: We did have more hens but we had a rat invasion in the coop which didn't end well). The hen and roo had grown up together, they had basically been inseparable for 4 years. Since he died, my hen and chick (who is now turning into a grown roo) haven't left their coop. They're free range so normally wonder around, but they haven't come out of their hutch. My 'chick' seems to be okay, he clucks and comes to greet me when i go up to see them. He seems fairly normal. But the hen is completley silent and won't come out of her coop.Normally she clucks away repeatedly, but she's almost silent now. Is it possible they're in mourning or something? From experience I haven't experienced chickens being particularly attached to each other, but I've not seen behaviour like this in chickens before. Surely they aren't still in shock? They've come down to the house for food and they're drinking water, but they've gone back to their coop and they're just sitting in there. Anyone experienced this before?
