Yesterday we found one of our two hens dead in our backyard. We believe she was attacked by a hawk. As we were removing her from the backyard we saw a redtail hawk sitting on top of a telephone pole about 20 yards away from where she was killed. The hawk has been around our house for a few weeks, and we have been keeping an eye on it. The crows had been doing a good job of chasing her away. We are so sad over about our sweet Dolly. My issue now is that we only have one hen, Loretta. Dolly and Loretta were inseparable as the would free range our backyard all day and help protect eachother. They are both Golden Comet hybrid and they were about a year old (we just got them back in May). I don't want Loretta to be alone. She thrived in the company of her companion and I believe the company gave her security. Do you think I would be able to successfully introduce a new adult hen to her (another Golden Comet)? We are still new to having chicken and would love some advice. The Golden Comets seem to be very agreeable and get along with other chickens very well. There was never any kind of fight for dominance between the two of them. Do you think I would have issues introducing another hen? Any thoughts are appreciated. Thank you.
