" For my yoke is easy and my burden is light "

Yes I agree give him the hen for a friend. He’s very traumatized and to gain his confidence may take a while. I’m so sorry about your neighbors flock, truly sad situation.
Did they get the cat?
It’d scare me having a bobcat in the area that now has a taste for chickens.
Give him time. I don’t know your setup. But if it were me I’d keep him in my x-Lg dog crate w/the hen inside my run. To loose your flock mates and the be taken to a new home with a bunch of new chickens is overwhelming. Go slow take your time. Give him treats by hand to build trust
The photo isn't clearFirst of all, that is not a cockerel. A cockerel would have very long, noticeably pointed saddle feathers by now.
She probably just needs some time. Put her in a quiet, dark place with a more gentle companion and give her lots of treats.
