    Hi all, I've lost a couple of my girls over the last couple of months leaving me with my top chuck, Freda. I've seen others comments where others have said they have experienced girls with depression symptoms who are lonely. My other half is not keen on having anymore, think he felt a bit lost at my reaction to losing the others. I've put an enormous mirror in the run and allow for a lot of time for her in the garden with an unlikely set of friends- cat and dog. The three of them seem to stick together and the dog especially misses the chuck when she's back in for the night. Well my question is, finally. Has anyone else had the experience of pets mixing for company? I've even found the cat and the chuck asleep together cuddling in the coop? What are your thoughts?
