My quandry: I have two EEs who were raised together. Just the two of them. One roo and one pullet. I recently integrated them into the rest of my flock. They are 7 months old. (They lived in my garage all winter). I already have a roo. I don't need the extra roo and his presence is causing some commotion within the flock. I have someone who is willing to take him. That would leave Ginger, the pullet, with the rest of the flock. She has been with them for a week. She is still getting pecked and bullied, but no major wounds or issues. The two of them sleep together separate from the rest of the flock in the coop. I feel like if I got rid of her roo, it would be rough on Ginger. I know I'm probably projecting too much human emotion on a couple of chickens, but I feel like I'd be tearing apart their family. I'm contemplating giving her to the lady who will take the roo just to keep them together. I had 4 chicks that I started with. 3 were roos. She is the daughter of our favorite chicken from last year that we lost. If we don't keep Ginger, I'll have spent god knows how much money and 7 months raising these two for nothing. But I'll give her up if it will break their little chicken hearts to separate them. What would you do?
