We lost all but one of our golden comet hens to a bear attack over the weekend. After we fortify the coop, we need to get another chicken or two to keep her company, I know they don’t do well on their own. Would it be best to only add one in this case? We had issues trying to add one to our full flock earlier in the year, and they were pretty horrible to the new chicken, so we returned her. I’m thinking if we only add one, they will be on a level playing field and can establish a pecking order easily, but I’m not sure. Does anyone have experience with adding hens to an “orphan” hen? Does the fact that the coop/run is her domain give her some power to handle adding multiple chickens?
