    I bought a pair of pastel calls 4 years ago. They were adults, so I am not sure how old they were. The Male passed away two weeks ago. The female has been calling for him a lot, and seems to want my company. I think she is lonely. I put my two rouen pullets in with her, hoping they would keep her company, but she avoids them.

    What would you suggest I get as a companion for her?
    Another adult call? Male or female? A call ducking? or just leave her alone and see if she settles down.

    Thank you for any advise.

    I would get her a male that is the same size.

    thanks for the replies. I am going to look for a mate for her, and if she settles in the meantime, I will just let her be.

    Learycow, I am in central MA, on the CT boarder.
