Hello everybody! I decided to make an account today because there's a question that's been bugging me for a little while now, and this seems like the place to ask it! Recently I've had a mama hen showing up in my back yard to dig around in the leaves with her chicks. For a while she had three chicks, but the other day one of them disappeared and we haven't seen it since. This brought up the question in my mind of whether or not chickens become sad over the loss of their babies. I've read around that they can get depressed from losing their best friends, but I can't seem to find anything about losing their chicks online. Thanks!
