We started out with six chickens and after 3 and a half years and 5 separate and tragic deaths we, as of 2 months ago, only one chicken left. She is a lovely and lovable buff orpington named Phat Candy. My concern is that Phat Candy is lonely and now that winter snow is coming she will not be exploring the big yard as much but in her coop and run. Will she be lonely and bored? Should I consider getting another adult chicken friend for her. How can I do this in a successful way? Please advise me.
