    Unfortunately last week all but one of my chickens were killed by a fox when they got out. I know that chickens get depressed in low numbers so I found two farms that sell chickens. However, one farm only sells chicks and the other only sells two year old chickens. The chicken I have left is 12 weeks old and we are redoing the room that I keep the chick incubator in so there isn't anywhere to keep chicks so I had to buy adults. I am going to pick them up tomorrow but I didn't know if the older chickens would be too mean to my young chicken. If anyone has any ideas on what I can do to make things go smoothly that would be greatly appreciated thank you!
