Well 4 months (not really sure) ago, I got 3 chicks. All were healthy and in like 3 weeks.. 2 of them died The survivor was still healthy and just walked around and stuff... Now its all grown and it still doesn't have any other chickens with her. I want to get more chicks for it, but my dad said "Wait till we move to a bigger house, which will be this spring or winter" WINTER WOULD BE TERRIBLE FOR DAY OLD CHICKS AND SPRING IS GONNA BE IN A LONG TIME!! See for one chicken we don't really need a coop yet... My parents think its unneccesary to get more and build a coop, when we are gonna move in a "little" bit we will. They are also mad at me because I wasn't responsible and let those 2 chicks die.. but I kept the best care of them! They just died and that happens some times but my parents just don't get it. Now my one chicken just hangs out alone.. Whenever I come outside, it runs up to me looking for company... Waiting for spring won't be that bad.... Right? Let me clear out some confusion, It walks around in a closed yard everyday and i bring it in at night. I have a nice, spacious brooder for it and 1 chicken can live there. I also know the breed I have is very cold hardy so Winter should not be a problem for it. I just don't want it to be lonely.... Maybe I should rehome it and maybe start over but this time I won't make the same mistakes like the first time. I am very new to the chicken businness so please give me some slack.
