Help for lone hen...

I just found out today that 2 out of my 3 chickens are roosters.
I have a good home for them, but I have no idea what to do for my one and only hen.

Is it best to...

A) Order new chicks and let her be "Boss Mamma"?

B) Keep one rooster and start my own flock?

C) Try to find some girls close to her age to get my egg poduction up and going?

Thanks in advance for any and all advice or suggestions.

(B) doesn't look bad, but I had a feeling maybe you didn't want a rooster? or maybe not those roos you have?

I'm afraid if you try to introduce chicks your hen will hurt them. (chickens can without warning be ferocious).

Just my thoughts and
