I noticed there were a lot of threads on this topic, but was hoping I could get some answers very specific to my situation. I had a flock of 4 Speckled Sussex hens, about 1.5 years old. Unfortunately, a fox got 2 of them over 5 days. Friends temporarily took the remaining 2 for us so that we could reinforce the coop. In hindsight this was an awful decision, as their flock killed one of them. I now have a lone hen and would like to get her a new companion or two. After losing the one chicken to bullying by the flock, I am very concerned about introducing new chickens to my hen. Would it be safer to add 1 or 2? Should I go with some younger pullets? A rooster is not an option... Thank you for any advice!!
