I"ve lost 3 of my RIR .. can I continue with just the one left?
She will be very lonesome..........
she is ... breaks my heart!
I might be in the same boat
We have 2 chicks left.
If our chick starts to crow we will have none of the original chicks we bought because they'll all have turned out to be roos
I only have one definite pullet who is here to stay, and if I get another to keep her company then I have to worry about introducing/fighting = bleh. If you try another, I was told it's best to sneak them together at night when they're sleepy on the roost.
Chickens are flock birds. They are social and function better in a group.
Go ahead, get another bird. They're like potato chips.... You can't just have one!

If your remaining hen goes broody you can try to sneak some hatchlings under her at night.
