About 2 months ago we hatched 2 chicks, Freckles and Red. They were in a baby coop because our adults are jerks and would peck at their heads. (They've killed 2-3 chicks this way). Recently someone dropped off a 9 month old stray puppy at our house. He got a hold of Freckles while we were trying to figure out what to do with him, and sadly Freckles didn't make it. The other chick was put with the older chicks because it was about time to mix, and they've been leaving her alone. ((Yes the dog is now unable to get to the coop, we found out what happened, one of the edges had gotten pulled up when my daughter ran into it)) However....she seems to not really want to mix with the older chickens, she follows me around, will sit on my shoulder while I do work around the yard. Is this normal behavior or something I should be worried about? She spends a lot of time looking for Freckles (who was white with black spots on her feathers). Do chickens get over this? Do they pine?
