I had a pair of hens yesterday, now I only have one. :-( It's winter and my almost-two-year old sexlink is now all by herself. Will she be OK until I find another hen to keep her company?
Awww, I'm so sorry for you.I feel so bad. It's my fault. I let them out into their run yesterday. They'd been "cooped up" for more than week while I was on vacation and were taken care of by a friend. But, ran some errands and forgot to put my girls back into their secured coop at dusk (around 5 p.m.). It as dark when I noticed Butter was still out. It's not unusual for her to hang around my back patio rather than go into her roost like Pepper would. I put Butter in her coop but failed to check on Pepper. My granddaughter and I picked these girls out as chicks and named them. She doesn't know yet .... I've had chickens before in the country, so I should have known better.
