My lone chook, who was abandoned when her best friend and sister passed last weekend has been lonely ALL week ! Today we went to the nursery to buy her a companion and they were undergoing reno's and so only had 18 week old chooks left. We took the biggest one and brought it home. My lone chook has lost her mind! I've put the new one in the coop under the bedroom part, partitioned her off so that they can see and talk to each other but the chook is just BOK BOK BOK-KING at the top of her lungs nonstop. I'm frightened for the new one, who since coming home has also developed a runny nose - is this stress? I've never done this before…. any words of wisdom, encouragement, advice? I think I'll leave the chickens separated today and see how they go tomorrow. This is stressing me out!!!!
